Women’s History Month:
People around the world will celebrate the hundredth anniversary of International Women’s Day today. In some places, like China, Russia and Vietnam, it’s a national holiday. In Wisconsin, commentator Erika Janik has been thinking about the history of women’s struggle for equal rights – and what that history means to her.
Erika Janik is a historian and author of “Odd Wisconsin” and “A Short History of Wisconsin.” Visit the Wisconsin Historical Society to learn more about women’s history in Wisconsin.
