March is Women’s History Month, and American Corner Debrecen brings y’all* a presentation from South Carolina by Scott Huffmon, political scientist and former Fulbrighter here in Debrecen. The title of his talk will be “Women who made history in U.S. politics”, and it will be followed by a Q&A.
*Dr. Huffmon will use this Southernism, a contraction of “you” and “all,” “without thinking”, when addressing or referencing two or more people.
March is Women’s History Month. This annual declared month is about commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. It is celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women’s Day on the 8th of March. The commemoration began in 1978 as “Women’s History day” in Sonoma County, California, and was championed by Gerda Lerner and the National Women’s History Alliance to be recognized as a national week (1980) and then month (1987) in the United States, spreading internationally after that.
