The month of March is dedicated to all women past, present and future. In honor of the history women went through, this month is about highlighting the achievements women have made and continue to make. 

Although American River College is not hosting any events, students still have options to join Cosumnes River College as they are hosting events to celebrate Women’s History Month. These events are open to all Los Rios Community College District students. There will be a film screening and a virtual discussion. 

There will be a film event on Thursday, March 18 from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m., Women in Film Presentation: Portrayals of the Enfranchised Woman. In this Zoom, students will join Cosumnes River College history professor Diana Reed and radio, television, and film professor Lauren Wagner as they discuss examples of political activism seen in film depictions of women. 

On Thursday, March 25, from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m., there will be a Zoom with CRC professors Anastasia Panagakos and Diana Reed discussing the film “Without a Whisper.” 

This discussion will go over the hidden history and influences that Indigenous women had at the beginning of the women’s rights movement in the United States. This discussion will help students gain more knowledge on specific groups of women and how they had an impact on American women’s history.

If students are not able to participate in any of CRC’s Women’s History Month events, there are also local events in Sacramento they can participate in for Women’s History Month.  

Join California Museum for its virtual tour, Museum Live: Women Inspire on March 27 from 11 a.m. to noon. According to the information posted on Downtown Sacramento’s website, this virtual tour features stories of more than 250 Golden State women from the 1700s to the present.
