Women's History

National Women's History Month is celebrated every year in March. In his 2012 Proclamation of Women's History Month, President Barack Obama called upon all Americans to "honor the history, accomplishments, and contributions of American women."

In celebration of the many achievements of all the American women from Harriet to Hillary who have helped shape our history, the U.S. Government Publishing Office offers for sale the following publications, highlighting the extraordinary accomplishments and contributions of American women.

One of America's courageous women in our collection is Harriet Tubman, escaped slave and brave conductor of the Underground Railroad who later fought for women's rights.  March 10, 2013, marked the 100th anniversary of her death. Other notable American women include nurse Clara Barton and other brave Army nurses; aviatrix Amelia Earhart; the first woman elected to Congress, Jeannette Rankin; First Lady Lady Bird Johnson; Japanese American linguists; and First Lady, U.S. senator and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
