We all have heard of famous women who fought for civil rights or who made significant contributions to the history of our nation. But there are many women who made equally important contributions and are less well known. Lynne Jackson, president of the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation, will lead interactive activities that celebrate these exceptional women, past and present.
Saturdays in March, Gateway Arch National Park hosts special programs that spotlight 18th-, 19th- and 20th-century women of Missouri and the West in honor of Women’s History Month. These family-based programs will take place in the Education Classroom located on the lower level of the Gateway Arch Visitor Center, and are free and open to all ages.
