Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month in the US (expanded into a full-month of recognition by Congress in 1987). The National Women’s History Project has dubbed this year “Our History is Our Strength” a nod to the emergence of Women’s Studies as field of study and the achievements of women throughout history. Here’s some important links and events to commemorate Women’s History Month:

Feminist’s for Choice is taking submissions for the month.

The NEH has a great site on Women’s History. (Thanks to @vcthree on Twitter for the link)

On March 12, 2011 all Nordstrom will host “Fit America” events encouraging women to come in and be properly fitted for a new bra. Every bra purchased at Nordstrom that day will result n a $2 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Call the lingerie department of your local Nordstrom or go online to RSVP.

Visit the Library of Congress’ page.

Check out Feministing for blog posts on “Gender Memory” and other great posts celebrating women this month and year-round.

Visit “The Ms. Education of Shelby Knox” and her “Radical Women’s History Project.”

 

Send me any links or events happening this month. I’ll be updating throughout the month.
