Women’s History Month 2012


 “As Americans, ours is a legacy of bold independence and passionate belief in fairness and justice for all. For generations, this intrepid spirit has driven women pioneers to challenge injustices and shatter ceilings in pursuit of full and enduring equality. During Women’s History Month, we commemorate their struggles, celebrate centuries of progress, and reaffirm our steadfast commitment to the rights, security, and dignity of women in America and around the world.”

Visit our blog for Women in History Shout Outs, which is one way we honor what women have been doing for years.  We do this in a weekly post year round, but for Women’s History Month, we will post a daily Shout Out. Your suggestions are welcome!
