Women’s History Month is a time to honor ordinary and extraordinary women, explore women’s achievements and struggles throughout history and acknowledge women’s contributions to our culture. The 2019 theme for Women's History Month is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence.”

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 equity, read literature that celebrates women and girls, 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 U.S. history and should be integrated into the curriculum throughout the school year. 

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