Women’s History Month!

Posted: March 3, 2022 by extremehistory in Uncategorized

March is Women’s History Month! At Extreme History, we highlight women’s history all year long – but it’s always nice to have a month dedicated to the ladies. This month we are partnering with many organizations to bring women’s history to you!

On March 14th at 6:30pm, our Director, Crystal Alegria, will present Activists and Advocates: A History of Bozeman Women Creating Change for the Bozeman Public Library virtually, click here for more information and the Zoom link.

On March 23, Extreme History is collaborating with the MSU Library, Friends of MSU Library, MSU’s American Indian/Alaska Native Student Services, Native American Studies, Women’s Center, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of the Dean of Students to bring you author Patricia Cutright. She will speak on her new book, Native Women Changing Their Worlds. For more information click this link.

On March 28, Extreme History is partnering with MSU’s Doig Center and American Studies Department to bring you Birthing The West: Mothers and Midwives in the Rockies and Plains, a book signing with Jennifer Hill. This in-person event will be held at Montana State University’s Leigh Lounge at 4pm. Reception to follow. We hope you can join us for one or all of these events that are all free and open to the public!

Our Extreme History Used Book Shop has a large section on women’s history so come in and pick up a book (or two, or three) to read during women’s history month.

We encourage you to learn about this history of women in your community and your own family, these histories are often significant and monumental. By weaving women’s history back into the historical narrative, we are making stories richer and more diverse.
