Women’s History just like Black History Month or Native American Heritage Month is more than a month -- do these months integrate or segregate? Is this about the diversity of our stories or equity and inclusion?
American History at its best should be an inclusive history. However, for many of us this has not been our experience and we do not see ourselves represented in many of the historical texts. This is changing with the help of oral histories, source documents and academics interested in deeper discussion regarding historical pedagogy. Librarians are on the front lines of providing access to this information and all of if deserves more than a month. I encourage you to explore and reach out to libraries and library information specialists (librarians) to learn more-- it is an exciting journey to take and they are fantastic guides.
