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!
