Womens History Month events focus on civil rights, politics, history

A series of events this month in Omaha highlight the contributions women have made to Nebraska.

March is Womens History Month. The Omaha Public Library branches are hosting lectures on the role of women in politics, history, and civil liberties.

OPL executive director Gary Wasdin says one presentation, scheduled for March 22nd at the library’s Florence Branch, will focus on the role of women pioneers in the 1870s and 1880s.  

Federal judge Laurie Smith Camp will speak at the downtown branch on March 25th about women and civil liberties.
