Women's Day

There's no way to adequately cover the vast realm of women's history. This past weekend was the 98th annual celebration of International Women's Day. And in light of this occasion, we pulled a few images from Flickr Commons, a forum in which museums, libraries and archives can share their photographic collections with the public.

By no means does this gallery cover everything. But here are a few fun and interesting moments in women's history — some momentous, others ordinary — simply illustrating that, if anything, as cameras developed, so did women's rights.
