Writing Women Back into History

What began in 1981 as Women’s History Week through a Joint Congressional Resolution co-sponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. Barbara Mikulski later evolved into Women’s History Month in 1987. Since then every year during March programs and activities take place across the country celebrating the significant contributions of women in history. This year the theme is Writing Women Back into History. Visit the Library of Congress  Women’s History Month site here learn lots more.

One Response to “Writing Women Back into History”

  1. It is essential to write women back into history, I completely agree. As Jane Austem once said:

    “Real solemn history, I cannot be interested in… The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars or pestilences, in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all, it is very tiresome.”
