March is Women’s History Month

by on March 11, 2014


In celebration, the National Archives has teamed up with other federal agencies and cultural institutions to provide digital content, including resources for teachers.

Along with the Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution, and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, we pay tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society on http://www.womenshistorymonth.gov/. The site includes teaching resources, exhibits and collections, images, audio and video, and a list of upcoming events.

Specifically for teachers, we share several online learning activities from our DocsTeach site:

Photograph of Suffrage Parade, 1913

Photograph of Suffrage Parade, 1913, Records of the Office of War Information, 1926 – 1951

Many related primary sources can be found on DocsTeach relating to Women Throughout American History and Women in Wartime.

Teachers  can access our special DocsTeach page with activities and primary source documents on 1970s America on DocsTeach, with primary sources on Women’s Rights.

The National Archives also highlights:

Our partner organizations share valuable resources too, like Nineteenth Century Activism: How a Small Group of Dedicated Citizens Changed the World from the National Park Service and Women’s History Month at the Movies from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

You can find these resources and more at http://www.womenshistorymonth.gov.
