National Women's History Month
Generations of Women Moving History Forward
(Picture downloaded from http://www.nwhp.org/ 02/12/07)
The 2007 theme recognizes the wisdom and tenacity of the generations of women who with their amazing intelligence, talent, courage and tenacity testify to the myriad ways that generations of women have moved history forward. It also presents special opportunities to highlight some critically important historic events, including the 50th anniversary of the integration of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, which helped ignite the Civil Rights Movement and the 30th anniversary of the National Women’s Conference in Houston, Texas, which marked a high point in the influence of the Women’s Rights Movement on the formation of government policy. The recognition of the historic anniversaries presents opportunities to acknowledge and celebrate the courage, determination, and steadfastness needed to move history forward.
To mark this event, we have compiled a bibliography consisting of books, journal articles and websites about the achievements of women down through the years.
