Women's History Month - March 2021
~Our History Is Our Strength~
-Myra Pollack Sadker, Professor, Author, Researcher and Activist
As recently as the 1970's, women's history was virtually an unknown topic in the k-12 curriculum. As educators, we are happy to see things have taken a drastic turn today in 2021. As librarians we strive to foster equality as part of our role, whether through promoting books with a positive message or providing safe spaces for progressive ideas to blossom.
Women's History Month provides students opportunities to celebrate and reflect upon the vital contributions made by women throughout history. The resources below will allow students to dive deeper into the experience of women who have contributed to positive change in their communities and around the world.
