National Women’s History Month

The National Women's History Project named eighteen honorees for 2013 in the fields of health, science, nature, mathematics, architecture, chemistry, and engineering, including virologist and molecular biologist Flossie Wong-Staal.

Greek-American Heritage Month

National Hellenic Museum in Chicago claims to be "the first and only major museum in the country dedicated to the Greek journey, from ancient times to the modern Greek American experience".

Irish-American Heritage Month

The Irish American Heritage Museum, Albany, New York is "dedicated to recording and presenting the history and heritage of the Irish in America". Many celebrations this month center around St. Patrick's Day, March 17. Saint Patrick (c. 385 A.D.-461) was a British missionary who brought Christianity to Ireland. Observances of March 17 have become more celebrations of Iris culture than Christianity.
