We’ve put together some of the resources at the Department of State to help celebrate Women’s History Month. 




Florida women in Civil Rights 

Patricia and Priscilla Stephens Jail-In Papers

“We cannot be contented with the conditions here in the South any longer. Our very souls are being taken away from us by discrimination.”

Correspondence from these sisters and leaders in the Civil Rights movement in Florida documents the 49 days they spent in Leon County jail during the spring of 1960.

A collection of photographs illustrates their lives, family and friends.
