The origins of Women’s History Month began 40 years ago with Women’s History Week. In 1987, it changed from celebrating women’s history for only one week in March to celebrating women’s history the entire month. Now in 2021, Fresno City College is celebrating Women’s History month with special events and special messages from women leaders at the college, in the classroom and in the community.

Panel discussion: “Choose Hope: How women have kept the hope alive during the pandemic”

Date: March 8, 2021
Time: 11:30 am
