Literacy New York Celebrates Women's History Month

Thu, Mar 2nd 2017 09:00 am

This month, Literacy New York commends women for making the world a better place.

We are indebted to our founder, Ruth Colvin, and the other fearless women who devoted their time and energy to increasing literacy across the country. Through the years, many women have worked tirelessly in our field, promoting literacy.

Together, we commemorate National Women's History Month. The 2017 theme is "Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business" and honors women who have successfully challenged the role of women in both business and the paid labor force. Women have always worked, but often their work has been undervalued and unpaid. The spotlight is being shone on these inequities.

So, during March, take the time to celebrate all the women in your life!
