Women’s History Month

In honor of women’s history month, I’m bringing you a collection of links to some amazing websites where you can learn about U.S. Women’s History, as well as the histories of notable women around the world.  As women, we owe a lot to oru foremothers.  Those who came before us and sacrificed for the rights that many of us take for granted.  It was less than a century ago when women were considered second-class citizens still fighting for their basic rights to be recognized.  Women didn’t have the right to vote in our country until 1920.  Much progress has been made in the past 89 years, but there is still a long way to go.
