Join the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement as we celebrate Women History Month at Jefferson!

This month, we encourage you to find unique ways to celebrate these Women and many others. Browse through this webpage for more ideas on how to celebrate Women’s History Month both at Jefferson and with your friends and family at home!  

Women’s History Guides

The Learning Commons has a great online guide about women’s history, including a sampling of notable women in different fields, information on topics like suffrage and abolition, and ways to get involved with this topic at JCTC and beyond.

Once you click on a book link, you will be able to see if it is an eBook, audiobook, or a physical book. You can check out eBooks and audiobooks by signing in with your JCTC username and password and then clicking the Borrow button. To check out a physical book, you will need to come to the Learning Commons with your JCTC ID. Due to the pandemic, the bookstacks are closed, but simply tell the librarian which book you would like to checkout and they will collect it for you.
