We’re all about celebrating women here at SJ Mag, and South Jersey women have made some serious strides in history through their hard work, talent and dedication. Wondering how you can celebrate Women’s History month? Here are a few ideas.

 

Rutgers–Camden Women’s History Month Celebration

Join vibrant discussions and presentations happening all month long. Subjects range from exploring healthy relationships to celebrating women in publishing and female artists.  View the full schedule here.

Alice Paul: In Pursuit of Ordinary Equality

Pioneering suffragette Alice Paul was born right here in South Jersey, and you can visit her Mt. Laurel home and celebrate her work for gender equality. No appointments are required for a self guided tour of her exhibit. Hours are 12-4pm (Tuesday – Friday) | Tickets are $5 per person | For more information, visit alicepaul.org.

Thin Mint, Anyone?

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

NJ Women’s Heritage Trail

South Jersey is full of historical sites marking the quest for equality and women’s rights. Take a trip to your local NJ Women’s Heritage Trail locations in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties. Some spots include:  Ann Cooper Whitall House | Boxwood Hall| Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh Brewhouse 

Cape May's Harriet Tubman Museum

Check out the Harriet Tubman Museum

Cape May’s new Harriet Tubman Museum was one of the most anticipated new museums in the country in 2020 – and for good reason. The museum, set in a converted parsonage of a historically significant Black methodist church, highlights the rich history of Cape May’s Black community, as well as, of course, Harriet Tubman’s efforts to free slaves while living in Cape May. The museum offers guided tours on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 am – 3 pm, and Sundays from 2 – 3 pm.

Get Advice from the Women’s Council

There’s honestly nothing we love more than women supporting other women – which is why we’re all about Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey Women’s Council on mentorship. The panel is on Friday, March 11 from 8 – 10 am at The Legacy Club at Woodcrest. Tickets cost $45 in person, $10 to tune in virtually.
