10 Women to Research for Women’s History Month

Greetings,

While many of us seek activities to fill our children’s calendars and minds for Black History Month in February, fewer remember to celebrate in March, for Women’s History Month.  I am also guilty.  It seems that only every couple years I remember that March is Women’s History Month and do something special.  The acknowledgement of March as the designated time to celebrate Women’s History commenced in 1987 in response to a petition from the National Women’s History Project.

Before this month comes to an end, take the time to research women history makers with your children.  The women listed are from different points in history and have made varying contributions.  While this is by no means a comprehensive list, or meant to relay the “most important” contributions, it is a start.  Please comment with the woman your family chose to research first and what you found out about her.
