Women's History Month: March
Women's History Month is celebrated throughout March here in the UK, in Australia and in the United States, where it first began in 1987.
Organisers for Women's History Month wanted to make sure future generations inherit an accurate account of the contributions of women throughout history.
By highlighting women who have made a difference in history, it opens up that world of possibilities to young girls.
This month is to celebrate women who, despite the odds, fought to have their voices heard, live with equal rights to men, vote in elections, own their personal property, adopt their own children, win gold medal, travel into space, become doctors and surgeons, and so much more!
In 2021, Mrs. Arnold read us sections from the "Fantastically Great Women" books each week. These were posted on our Facebook page and can also be found below:
