Legacy

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.)

Never was much for history but I did enjoy geography. Still like to read a good map!

Great post. If you could go to lunch with one of the heroes, who would it be?

When we no longer require a special month to honor the forgotten of history -- Black History Month, Women's History Month -- we will all be equal. Great post!

I second kmkat! :)

Every month is Women's History Month. Some people just haven't realized it yet.
