February is Black History Month, but how many of you know that March is Women’s History month? March 4, is actually celebrated around the world as International Women’s Day. Women of Lakewood had, and continue, to impact our community through their roles in politics, social organizations, education, and community change. Much like what we did at Lakewood Historical Society over the course of February, highlighting the unique and important role African Americans played in the history of Lakewood, we will showcase many of the achievements and impacts of Lakewood’s Women. Stay tuned for our first installment of the Ladies of Lakewood series…Votes for Women!
