SPOTLIGHT! On Women Who Have Led the Way

In 1987 the US Congress designated the entire month of March as Women’s History Month. Teachers and students can celebrate the impact women have had on our history, identity, culture, and daily lives today (and all the other days) with the resources on these websites.

National Trust for Historic Preservation

The National Trust for Historic Preservation invites teachers and students to explore more than 1,000 places where women have left their mark. Searching by date, topic, or state, they will find fascinating stories where women made history, in places famous or unknown, protected or threatened, existing or lost. They will discover women across the centuries whose vision, passion, and determination have shaped America today.

National Women’s History Museum

Visitors to the National Women’s History Museum’s website will uncover a wealth of digital resources for women’s history. Among the resources are lesson plans, biographies, posters, primary sources, videos, and more—all searchable by type, theme, topic, or grade level. One example is a “Thinking Historically” feature that describes the evolution of women’s athletic wear. A feature entitled “Unsung Voices” includes Black women who played a role in women’s suffrage. “Brave Girls Virtual Storytime” presents children’s storybooks such as Sofia Valdez, Future Prez. And “Cooking with the First Ladiesvideos highlight Lou Hoover’s Girl Scout cookie recipe, Martha Jefferson’s apple dumplings, and Abigail Adams’s Indian pudding.

National Museum of Women in the Arts

The National Museum of Women in the Arts offers Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC), a bilingual curriculum that promotes visual literacy and critical thinking by developing students’ skills in observation, reflection, and arts creation. Accompanying educator guides, adaptable for preK–12 classrooms, include information about artists and artworks, digital images, discussion questions, suggested classroom activities, and related standards of learning. Teachers and students are also invited to explore the extensive online exhibitions related to the museum’s collections, artists, and other special exhibitions.
