Throughout March, visitors to the Center can participate in a variety of events in honor of Women’s History Month. During the Philadelphia Girl Power show, visitors can learn about the remarkable women who have called Philadelphia home, such as Betsy Ross and Marian Anderson. Visitors also can take a self-guided tour of the Center’s main exhibition, The Story of We the People, which highlights defining moments in women’s history.

Artifact highlights include a judicial robe worn by retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and a collection of artifacts from Susan B. Anthony and the movement for women’s suffrage. In connection with American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, the Center’s Women’s History Month celebration will turn the spotlight on famous women of the Prohibition era, including Carry Nation, Frances Willard, and Pauline Sabine. The Center also will feature special programming that explores the role of women in both the ratification and repeal of Prohibition, as well as the changing role of women in society during the time period.
