Each time a girl opens a book and reads a womanless history,
she learns she is worth less."
– Myra Pollack Sadker
March is National Women's History Month! Every year, the National Women's History Project (NWHP) sets the theme and coordinates observances that allow us to reflect upon and celebrate the many significant contributions of women to greater society.
But when March has ended, the NWHP continues to promote the past and present achievements of women in all facets of life, including science, community, government, literature, art, sports, medicine. Creating avenues to positively impact the development of self-respect and new opportunities for girls and young women has been the NWHP's goal for all of its 30 years of existence.
With an emphasis on positive role models and the importance of women from all backgrounds, the NWHP has developed a nationwide constituency of teachers, students, parents, public employees, businesses, organizations, and individuals with whom it leads local and national efforts, consults, publishes, distributes, inspires, advises, and networks to provide important opportunities for sharing research and stories about women’s roles, struggles, and successes today and throughout our history.
