National Women's History Month Resources

March is National Women's History Month.

The Library of Congress has developed a collection of
resources for National Women's History Month, with
a 2007 theme of "Generations of Women Moving
History Forward." The site features items from the
library's online collections (organized by topic), images,
audio and video files, biographical sketches of
prominent women, and links to related resources.

The National Women's History Project (NWHP) is celebrating
the month with a series of events, honorees, and promotional
materials on the same theme. You can also test your
knowledge of women's history on the NWHP web site.

Also highlighting the month is the National Women's
History Museum. The museum's web site offers lesson
plans, biographies, quizzes and quotes, "cyber exhibits"
and walking tours (with online guides) to women's
history sites.

The USINFO (U.S. Department of State) is commemorating
the month with links to a list of web articles celebrating
women's rights and achievements.
