March is Special

March is National Women’s History month!

There is an excellent website sponsored by the National Women’s History Museum that has on-line exhibits that are worth a visit.  Among the many subjects are:
  • Women in Early Film
  • Clandestine Women: Spies in American History
  • Chinese American Women: A History of Resilience and Resistance
  • Women Wielding Power, Women Claiming Their Citizenship, and Many More!
The National Women’s History Museum has a mission to build the first ever national museum in Washington, D.C., dedicated exclusively to women’s history. It will be centrally located near the world’s most prestigious museums and monuments in our Nation’s Capital. On March 25, 2009, Representative Carolyn Maloney introduced HR 6548 that identifies a different site at
12th Street
Independence Avenue
in Washington, D.C. as the museum’s home.  That Bill has not yet passed Congress.

Take a minute to celebrate women sometime this month!
