Celebrate Virtually Through Florida Universities

In an ordinary year, celebrations for Women's History Month happen in-person, at universities, in museums and at cultural centers around the state. This year, those celebrations won't be happening in-person. Still, some universities in Florida are holding virtual celebrations that you can attend for free. University of North Florida is holding a virtual Women's History Month celebration that kicks off on March 3. The event continues through the month with events like Women Veterans Recognition Week and Feminist Fact Friday. Register for these events on UNF's website.

At Florida Atlantic University, the Womxn's History Month Virtual includes events like "Wonder Women in Science" on March 23 and "Caribbean Women in History" on March 22. Register for these events online.

Choose a Floridian Woman to Learn About

History is full of Florida women who have made great accomplishments over the years, including Zora Neale Hurston, author of Their Eyes Were Watching God, and Marjorie Kinnan Rowlings, author of The Yearling. Pick one of Florida's many famous women and read a book about them. If you've got a friend who is interested in participating in this with you, make an agreement to pick different people, read about them, and then report back.

Contact a Florida Woman Who Inspires You

Think of a woman that you know who lives in Florida and who has traits you admire. This could be someone in public life, like a politician, or someone that you know in your own life. This could even be your own mother! Pick a woman who you admire and make a point to tell that person what they mean to you. Let them know that they inspire you, and why. You might do this over an email, a phone call, or through a letter.
