When I was a schoolgirl - back in the 60s and early 70s - one of my favorite subjects was history. But I was always a bit confused. Where were the women? I actually figured we called it "history" because it really was. . . his-story.
I feel a little better about things now days . . . because for the last 30 years, March means Women's History Month. And that means. . . we get a little of her-story, too.
Please join me this month as I celebrate the legacy of women . . . right here on my blog. To get things started, here is a slide show highlighting women in history, set to Ann Reed's powerful folksong, "Heroes."
(Click here if you'd like to see the lyrics to "Heroes" -- of if you'd like to learn more about any of the women featured at the end of the song.)
