March is International Women’s History Month.

“Since the early days of statehood, women in California have been at the forefront of the fight for civil rights.  We will look at the lives of those who, starting in the 1860s, fought for racial integration of public services and schools, and for women’s voting rights. Join us as we learn what motivated these bold women – and the rights they won for us all.”

Join Elaine Elinson is a co-author of Wherever There’s a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California, which won a Gold Medal in the California Book Awards. Signed copies will be available.
