NEW YORK — March is Women’s History Month, but here in New York, there’s a place where women’s achievements are celebrated every day of the year.
At the New-York Historical Society, the Center for Women’s History focuses on how women have shaped the American experience. It is the first historical collection of its kind in a major museum.
Congress proclaimed Women’s History Month in 1987.
The center highlights the contributions of influential women in our history and hosts special programs throughout the year.
Anna Danziger Halperin, associate director of the Center for Women’s History, joined CBS2 to talk about what’s happening at the center this month.
