Women's History Month
Since the late 1980s many schools in America have designated March as Women's History Month. It is a time to learn about women who have created, built, invented, taught and inspired - and will continue to do so.
"From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well."
President Jimmy Carter
