March is Women’s History Month

This March CISofHR joins The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service and Smithsonian Institution in commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.

From The Library of Congress:

“The challenge of women’s history is not a simple question of ‘add women and stir,'” writes historian Susan Ware in her introduction to the guide. “It means rethinking and rewriting the story.” Ms. Ware, who is currently editor of Notable American Women at Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies, offers a brief survey of the state of women’s history that illustrates the new questions emerging from the field and stresses the importance of research and documentation in answering them. She concludes, “Sometimes it is a case of finding totally new sources and documents to tell a story that needs to be told, but far more often it is a matter of revisiting more traditional sources and asking different questions of them. That is where the rich resources of the Library of Congress come in.”
