Equity Lens: Women's History Month

March 8th was International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and also a call to action for accelerating women's equality. The whole month of March is also Women’s History Month, commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.  Many are unaware of the extent of women's contributions to society, whether past or present, and acknowledging women’s contributions is part of writing Iowa’s history. The Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame and the Cristine Wilson Medal for Equality and Justice are ways to honor Iowa women!
