In recognition of Women's History Month, “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives”
Every year the National Women’s History Project selects a unifying theme to be shared with all who want to promote
women’s history. This year’s theme presents the opportunity to weave women’s stories – individually and collectively –
into the essential fabric of our nation’s history. There is a real power in hearing women’s stories, both personally and
in a larger context. Remembering and recounting tales of our ancestors’ talents, sacrifices, and commitments inspires
today’s generations and opens the way to the future. Source: womenshistorymonth.gov
