On March 8th many countries around the globe celebrate International Women's Day. It is even a national holiday in some locations!
In the United States we celebrate National Women's History Month which was decided by Congress in 1987.
Visit the Children's Library in March to see some of the inspiring women who have graced the covers of award-winning picture books and biographies. There are many more female heroes in the Kids Bio section of the library, as well as in the below booklist.
