March is Women's History Month!

Today marks the first day of Women's History Month, which is celebrating its 30th Anniversary!

The National Women's History Project, the educational non-profit organization responsible for lobbying Congress to create this commemorative distinction, has named this year's theme to be "Writing Women Back into History."

Check out their website for more information, videos, posters, and even a women's history quiz!!

Also, in celebration of influential American women, take a look at this virtual exhibition called "Women of Our Time" that the National Portrait Gallery released to accompany a large scale traveling exhibition from 2002-2005. Among the women featured are Eleanor Roosevelt, Julia Child, Sylvia Plath, Ella Fitzgerald, and none other than Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger!!
