Scratch the surface of women’s history in the United States and you’ll discover the National Women’s History Project. If you’re planning an event for your school or organization, it’s likely that the National Women’s History Project has books, posters, or other resources available for you at its online store.
No one can speak about women’s history without finding their journey leading to the Santa Rosa, California organization started by women’s history activists Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett, and Bette Morgan. They led a coalition that successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress to designate March as Women’s History Month. The NWHP is known throughout the nation as a clearinghouse that provides essential information and training in multicultural women’s history for educators, community organizations, parents or anyone interested in expanding their understanding of women contributions to U.S. history.
On March 28, 2015 the National Women’s History Project will celebrate its 35th anniversary at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles, CA from 2 to 5 p.m. The program will recognize the women’s history honorees in attendance that include Darlene Clark Hine, Polly Welts Kaufman, Holly Near, Vicki Ruiz, Lynn Sherr, and Judy Yung. The $75 tickets are available through the National Women’s History Project web site. Special rates for out-of-town guests are available at the Los Angeles/North Glendale Hilton, 100 West Glenoaks Boulevard, Glendale, CA 91202 (818)956-5466.
