The National Women's History Alliance (NWHA) has set the 2023 theme for Women's History as "Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.”

"Throughout 2023, the NWHA will encourage recognition of women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more. The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade."

The events and awards listed below highlight some of this year's UNL Women's History Month Activities.
