On March 19

On this day in ...
... 1978, the U.N. Security Council passed Resolutions 425 and 426, which called upon Israel to withdraw all its troops from Lebanon, and further established the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
... 1937, France accorded women status in civil society. Specifically, to proceed in any civil action, judicial or administrative, a woman could no longer be required to get her husband's approval.
