Women's History Month Resources

Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate ordinary and extraordinary women, discover women’s achievements and struggles throughout history and honor women’s contributions to our culture.  Since 1987, the United States has been commemorating Women’s History Month and each year, a special Presidential Proclamation is issued which honors the achievements of American women. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment.”

In schools and classrooms, Women’s History Month is an excellent time to talk with students about gender stereotypes and bias, hail important women in history, discover more about women’s issues and their fight for equal rights throughout history, read great literature that celebrates women and girls and analyze sexism and explore its causes and solutions. As with other similarly themed months, it is important not to isolate exploration of women’s history and culture into one month during the year. Women’s history is American history and should be integrated into the curriculum throughout the school year. 

Here is a list of helpful PreK-12 curriculum and other resources to bring Women’s History Month to your classrooms:

  1. Book of the Month: Grace for President (grades K-2)
  2. Current Events Classroom: Stereotypes of Girls and Women in the Media (grades 6-12)
  3. Current Events Classroom: Toys and Gender (grades preK-3)
