For herstory: We know about the prominent men in Philadelphia history, but what about the women? Check out “The Women of Philadelphia: A Documentary,” at 6:30 p.m. at New Century Trust (1307 Locust St.) to learn about the ladies that shaped Philly.

For a culinary marathon: It’s a meaty Monday at World Café Live (3025 Walnut St.) when eight courses of beef — braised, dry rub, slow roasted — paired with bourbon and beer is served starting at 7 p.m.

What a special day it is.

For Women’s History Month: Take an hour-long tour either at 11:30 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. at the National Museum of American Jewish History (101. S. Independence Mall East) to learn a bit about notable women in American Jewish history.

For a snack: Choose between cheese or chocolate fondue (or both if you’re feeling up to it) at Chaddsford Winery’s (632 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford) Wine and Fondue afternoon (the final one of the series). Make a reservation (call 610-388-6221) for between noon and 5 p.m. and dip and sip — you’ll be provided wines that pair perfectly with your fondue choice.
