March is Women’s History Month
The theme for 2013 Women’s History Month is Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
In observance of Women’s History Month, the Commission on the Status of Women is honoring the memory and contributions of seven women who throughout our county’s history have used their intelligence, imagination, sense of wonder, and tenacity to make extraordinary contributions to the STEM fields. These women pioneers are featured in a Women’s History Month exhibit in the Governmental Center, 115 S. Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Additional local/national STEM resources are available.
