Women’s History Month is celebrated in March in the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. This year, the theme is “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment”. You can find more about the celebration of, and history behind, National Women’s History Month in the U.S. here.
There are plenty of related resources on Curriki, appropriate across all grade levels. Some of the exemplary resources are available here, and here, and here. The last of these includes a number of free Kindle e-books on women’s rights and other topics.
Can you name these accomplished women from history, who exhibited character, courage and commitment?
There is also a very extensive list of resources at Larry Ferlazzo’s blog here. One of the very nice links is to a NY Times photomontage with reader-submitted “photographs from around the world that illustrate the importance of educating girls and empowering women.”
