SF’s HERstory Festival: 100+ Events

In March 2019, the San Francisco Public Library presents HERstory, a month-long celebration of Women’s History Month, honoring and acknowledging the contributions of women and the unique experience of being female today with a diverse array of lectures, films, performances and programs for all ages at every library location.

During HERstory, the public is invited to attend a discussion on the perceptions of women as decision makers; get sexually healthy with Good Vibrations; discuss women rockers of the ‘60s and ‘70s; discover women who tackle big wave surfing; learn about the iconic MaestraPeace mural; hear from local woman entrepreneurs; learn to soul line dance with their neighbors; and much more.

Empowering “HERstory” Books to Check out

And of course, they wouldn’t be a library, without books. The librarians have curated HERstory book lists for Women’s History Month. Check out recent feminist fiction, women and immigrants in the labor movement, and HERstory books for children and teens.

Art Exhibit

In addition, the Library presents Immigrant Girl, Radical Woman, an exhibition in the Main Library of original drawings, prints and ephemera of artist and writer, Robbin Légère Henderson. She illustrates the memoir of her grandmother Matilda Rabinowitz, an early 20th century Russian immigrant, activist and independent woman. Rabinowitz left a fascinating memoir of immigration, child labor, political awakening, ardent participation in historic political movements and embrace of early feminist ideals. Programs on immigrant women and labor organizing complement the exhibit.

HERstory 2019 Event Highlights

For details on the more than 100 programs happening in March, view the HERstory program guide, richly illustrated with drawings by Miriam Klein Stahl. Stahl and author Kate Schatz are the awe-inspiring women behind the New York Times best-selling books Rad American Women A to ZRad Women Worldwide and Rad Girls Can. They will be speaking on March 21 at the Public Knowledge Branch at SFMOMA.

Join the panel of local female entrepreneurs as they share their journeys in becoming successful small business owners.
