Women's History Month


Though Women’s History Month is almost over, I can say that it’s something I celebrate every day, as a woman who is frequently researching women!

Fortunately, this great website produced by the government doesn’t go away at the end of the month.  It pays tribute to women through history with exhibits, collections, images, history and much more.

On a related note, NARA is “Putting Women on the Map: New Women’s History Collections on Historypin” which talks about four new image collections focusing on women of the past.

Did any particular person’s story or image just really catch your attention in these collections?  If so, please let share!
