March marks National Women’s Month, we at Doherty Library are showcasing women who have made an impact on society. From suffragettes of the early 20th century, women who helped men in World War II, to the first woman to be nominated to the Supreme Court.
Women’s contribution is highlighted this month to recognize the past, educate and inspire students, faculty, and Houston community. For instance, Althea Gibson was the first African American to play and win at Wimbledon in 1956. Althea and many others continue to provide inspiration to others.
Also, every Tuesday of March at 3:00 p.m., we are highlighting women who inspire. Take a look at what the library will be showing:
Miss Representation 3/12
Harper Lee 3/19
Maya Angelou 3/26
Please join us and encourage inspiration!

Join us as we celebrate Black History Month, by examining great authors in different subjects such as literature, History, Psychology, Music, and much more. Such great authors from Toni Morrison to President Barack Obama have shaped our literary minds to understand someone else’s footprints.
Another example is Langston Hughes, an American poet and Activist. Hughes was a contributor to the Harlem Renaissance, using jazz rhythms in an early form of literary art from of jazz poetry. His works provided the portal of the Black life from the 1920s-1960s.
