March is Women’s History Month in the U.S.
The NWHP selects Honorees for the month, chosen for their exceptional accomplishments in the field highlighted for that year. You can read about them here.
Or, you might want to celebrate Women’s History Month by exploring some of the many books recommended by librarians and others easily searchable on the web. One popular list is published each year by the Amelia Bloomer Project. As the website explains:
“The Amelia Bloomer Project List consists of well written and illustrated books with significant feminist content, intended for young readers from birth to 18 years old. Named for Amelia Bloomer, a pioneering 19th century newspaper editor, feminist thinker, public speaker and suffragist, the list features books about girls and women that spur the imagination while confronting traditional female stereotypes.”
