DUBLIN, Ohio – Celebrated in the U.S. since 1987, Women’s History Month honors the brave, accomplished and influential women whose perspectives and achievements have changed the course of the nation’s history.
To help make engagement in that history more accessible and actionable, WorldCat.org, the world’s largest library catalog, has collected and curated resources and expert lists on a topic page about women’s lives.
The materials found on the WorldCat.org Women’s History topic page are intended to provide educators, parents, students and the general public with a centralized source of important resources for Women’s History Month and for women’s studies throughout the year.
The Women’s History topic page contains lists of books, documentaries, films, videos and more, curated across focus areas that include:
• 20 notable moments from American women's history • The fundamentals of women's history • Women and the economy • Women in politics • Women in sports • Anthologies of women writers • Biographies and memoirs of notable women • Popular stories and depictions of women • Other popular searches on, or related to, women's history on WorldCat.org
Included on the topic page are resources from such organizations as The National Women’s History Alliance, which spearheaded the movement to declare March as Women’s History Month, the National Women’s Studies Association, and The Karson Institute for Race, Peace and Social Justice .
“When we helped establish Women’s History Month, our aim was to promote women’s history through education, empowerment, equality and inclusion,” said Molly Murphy MacGregor, executive director and co-founder of The National Women’s History Alliance. “This unique collaboration with WorldCat.org creates a centralized, comprehensive and accessible resource that enables people to explore the strength and inspiration of the women who came before us – and the remarkable women working among us today.”
