March 2014 is Women's History Month! LFCC joins in paying tribute to the generations of women who have made significant contributions to events in history and contemporary society.

Check back here each week of March 2014 for a weekly Women's History Month LFCC Fact!

March 22 - 28: DID YOU KNOW THAT... 

  • Women did not compete in the Olympics until 1900 and not in the ski jumping event until this year. 
  • LFCC Professor Frost McLaughlin played on a boys' basketball team in Virginia Beach because there was no league for girls (Title IX was enacted in 1972.)      

LFCC provides a positive, caring and dynamic learning environment that
inspires student success, values diversity and promotes community vitality.
