Since March 1981, Women’s History Month has been celebrated across America. Designed to correspond with National Women’s Day on March 8th, this month highlights women’s histories, struggles, and stories and encourages folks to put their attention on the great women in the world and in their lives.
Women’s History Month is a great time to learn about those unsung heroes and forgotten stories of the past. The National Parks Service has plenty of great resources allowing folks to learn about topics of their choosing. Looking for suggestions? Their history of women’s suffrage and the 19th Amendment is a must-read for any woman, and they also feature an enlightening article on Harriet Tubman.
For any educators looking to pass on women’s history lessons to their students, the National Endowment for the Humanities features a teacher’s guide of Women’s History in the United States. The Women’s History Month website also features a variety of resources.
No matter how you choose to acknowledge Women’s History month, these resources are sure to get you on your way to learning more about women's history!
