National Women's History Month Webinar
This webinar provided a comprehensive overview of the National Women's History Project (NWHP) and National Women’s History Month 2016. The theme for 2016 is “Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government”. The NWHP is planning programs and events for March 2016 as well as opportunities to participate in the celebration of the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote in 2020.
In 1980, the National Women’s History Project (NWHP) was founded in Santa Rosa, California by Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett and Bette Morgan to broadcast women’s historical achievements.
The NWHP started by leading a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women’s History Month, now celebrated across the land.
Today, the NWHP is known nationally as the only clearinghouse providing information and training in multicultural women’s history for educators, community organizations, and parents, and for anyone wanting to expand their understanding of women contributions to U. S. history.
