Happy Women’s History Month! Originating as a national celebration in 1981, March marks this dedicated month, where this year’s theme is Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories. From Maya Angelou to Sonia Sotomayor to Simone Biles, there have been so many who have helped transform the U.S. and evolve our history, culture, and society. Here’s how you can commemorate this special month in San Francisco.
