Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month, and it is a time to recognize and celebrate the lives and contributions of American women. Throughout history, women have experienced intimidation and adversities with which few modern women are familiar. Through their steadfastness and courage, women have fought for change, such as gaining women's basic right to vote, reproductive freedom, and equal pay. Many of today's women show tremendous courage in their everyday lives. They have forged change, socially and personally, as well as in their local communities. In accordance with the national organization, Tallahassee Community College holds an annual celebration during which 10 community women and five current TCC female students are recognized for their outstanding leadership skills as well as their service to the community. 

The 2020 theme is Valiant Women of the Vote.

The theme this year is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, which began giving women the right to vote on the federal level.  Nominations are being accepted for this year to recognize women who have worked for the preservation and continuing efforts of women’s rights.

The Women's History Month Committee is currently accepting nominees for this year's theme. The nominees should have achieved significant success in areas related to this year's theme, women's issues, transforming culture or society, history or politics, or as educators, leaders, writers, scientists, or others.

Submit your nomination below. 

The Honoree ceremony will be held on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. at the Ghazvini Center for Healthcare Education. The address is 1528 Surgeons Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32308.
