Women's History Roundup: Make It More Than One Month

Sunday, April 1, 2012

Women's History Month is coming to an end, so be sure to check out the array of listings, rankings and interesting articles that appeared in March.



Don't leave women's history to just one month. There's plenty going on year-round.
Women's eNews, for one, will continue offering our Opening the Way women's history walking tour for New York City, for which Girl Scout badges are now awarded.
 
The following sites also offer a constant focus on women's history.
  • The National Women's History Museum has a number of online exhibits, including one on American female spies and 12 women who have run for president of the United States.
  • The Library of Congress has its women's history collections always on view.
  • Smith College has eight online exhibits, including one on the papers of female World War II correspondents.
  • The Smithsonian offers looks at famous business women, female inventors and portraits of notable American women, to name a few.
  • Looking ahead, in April the Brooklyn Museum will honor 15 “first women.”
Also, on March 30, WeNews' year-round coverage of women's issues was honored by About.com readers, who selected us as “Favorite Women's Rights Blog or Website.” Thanks, About.com!
