March is Women’s History Month
The Broward County Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) will observe National Women’s History Month, March 1st-31st, by hosting A Community Conversation – Women 4 Women – forum to understand the major issues affecting women and their families throughout the county. The free forum is open to the public and takes place Friday, March 27th, 3-5PM, at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center, 2650 Sistrunk Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale.
