Celebrating the societal, political and cultural influences of women today and throughout history

The list of women who have occupied significant roles in American history and culture is varied and great: Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Blackwell, Eleanor Roosevelt, Louisa May Alcott, Margaret Sanger and Hillary Rodham Clinton are just a few such women.

Women of the 21st century continue this tradition of excellence and are widely recognized for their myriad achievements. But historically, the subject of women’s history was missing from classrooms and absent from the cultural dialogue. In an effort to increase awareness about women’s societal contributions, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution in 1987 designating the month of March as Women’s History Month.

SIRS Knowledge Source pays tribute to women and their rich and complex history with a wealth of articles and Web sites such as:
