March on! Women's History Month

Well, when there's a topic of national interest, the first place I look for resources is inevitably Library of Congress.  Women's History Month resources are amazing at LOC: They have a dedicated website just for this subject at  The body of the home page includes links and summaries of popular women like Amelia Earhart and "Women Breaking Musical Barriers."  The links in the left-hand margin are more general, and include exhibits & collections, images, audio/visual, and resources for teachers.  I also appreciated the calendar of events in the menu along the right-hand column.  But, by far, my favorite aspect of their home page is the links to other resources (scroll to the bottom of the right-hand menu).  There are resources from the National Parks, The National Endowment for the Humanities, and the United States Holocaust Museum.  Oh, and the Smithsonian educator's page is also included.  Library of Congress has created a rich resource for primary information, research resources, and a guide to other Internet resources.  Way to go!
