Each March is Women's History Month and often there are events in Silver City (check the calendar for March 8th- 2 events) and each year the US Censes sends a fact sheet with their latest stats, which are usually old but interesting. This year is especially important for men to come out in solidarity as we now have a "Molester-In-Chief" as president.

Begin fact sheet:
Women's History Month: March 2017
The roots of National Women’s History Month go back to March 8, 1857, when women from various New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions. International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, but it was not until 1981 that Congress established National Women’s History Week to be commemorated annually the second week of March. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the president has issued a proclamation.
