Women of History

The core of our website is the collection of a number of original biographies and sketches of women of history who represented the history of women’s struggle for equal rights.  We began the collection in celebration of Women’s History Month 2016.  Please consider adding a biography, a personal vignette or links to pertinent online articles and I will review and add them. Your material may be submitted via the Contact form or emailed dy.to wlorrainewatkins@gmail.com

Over this past year the website has been slowly expanding to include links to online articles that recount our history and a blog for more contemporary discussions and links.
