Women’s History Month

No dream is unattainable if you believe in yourself.

March is Women’s  History Month. This year’s theme is Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Throughout history there have been women who have accomplished amazing things that have often gone unnoticed in a world dominated by men. Women’s History Month calls attention to these achievements and it strives to make women, young and old, realize possibilities.

There are many books that pay homage to those spirited women who have helped shape our history. Below I have included some I’ve used in our school library, and I’ve also listed past and current posts and links that provide a myriad of books and information on famous women in history.

I encourage you to pick and choose from these books that will inspire young women and men to dream impossible dreams and make every effort to realize those dreams.
