Get inspired by HERstory, SFPL’s celebration of women's history, honoring and acknowledging the contributions of women and the experience of being female. All year round, the Library champions women writers, artists, academics and professional leaders in their fields. Come hear author talks and panel discussions, see what's on view in our exhibits, take part in book clubs, watch films, engage in interactive programs and build strength and solidarity. Themes center around women as groundbreakers, feminism, the women’s movement and much more.
“Knowing your generational story firms the ground upon which you stand. It makes your life, your struggles and triumphs, bigger than your lone existence. It connects you to a grand plotline.”
― Cicely Tyson, Just as I Am
