Women’s History Month Theme: Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence

Blog Post created by Chelsea Simens on Mar 25, 2019

This year’s theme is Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence (National Women’s History Alliance). They define this as, “women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society.” We honor any woman who has, “embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results.”

 

Linked below are some historical moments for women throughout history:
