March is Women’s History Month, and this year’s theme is — “Get to Know the Women Who’ve Changed Our World.”
As you plan various activities to commemorate this event, I encourage you to browse through the Gale company’s “Women’s History Web site” — http://www.gale.cengage.com/free_resources/whm/. Among the wealth of free resources featured on this site are:
Biographies: Concise, compelling profiles of some of today’s and history’s most accomplished women.
Links: A selection of hyperlinks to other WWW pages by, and for, women and girls.
Quiz: A new quiz will appear each week throughout March.
Activities: Suggested subject guides and projects for students’ and clubs members of various ages.
Women’s Rights on Trial: Selected key trials of historical importance to American women, which have set judicial precedents.
Timeline: Women’s history highlights from 4000 B.C to the 21st Century.
Calendar: Notes significant historical anniversaries for each day in March 2009.
Bookmarks: Four colorful designs!
Happy Women’s History Month!
