Here’s a few ways to celebrate Girl Power all month long.

 

VISIT THE ALICE PAUL INSTITUTE

Women’s rights hero Alice Paul was born right here in South Jersey, and you can visit her Mount Laurel home and celebrate her work for gender equality. The institute offers tours and hosts events throughout the year. This month, check out API’s screening of “Equal Means Equal” on from 6 to 7 pm on March 8 on the Rowan College of Burlington County campus. The film explores the history of the Equal Rights Amendment and is free to the public. For more information, visit alicepaul.org.

 

GRAB A COOKIE

Support your local Girl Scout troop using the handy-dandy Girl Scout Cookie Finger app. Find where your local scouts are selling cookies, or search via zip code on the organization’s website, girlscouts.org. All proceeds for cookies go toward funding new adventures and life-changing opportunities for girls.

 

LEARN ABOUT “WILD WOMEN”

Join local outdoorswoman Cindy Slawski at the Maple Shade library for a special presentation on “Wild Women: The Most Influential Women in the Outdoors” to learn all about epic women and their contributions to the outdoors – both past and present – on March 16 at 6:30 pm. For more information, visit bcls.lib.nj.us.

 

RECOGNIZE WOMEN OF THE REVOLUTION

Renowned professor and author Dr. Catherine Kerrison comes to Rutgers-Camden on March 26 to discuss “Jefferson’s Daughters: The Archival Challenges of Women’s History.” The lecture from 5 to 7 pm will explore the vastly different lives and legacies of Thomas Jefferson’s three daughters – two mothered by his wife, and one by his slave. For more information, email dcw62@camden.rutgers.edu.
