101 Wonderful Ways To Celebrate Women's History. Revised.
Eisenberg, Bonnie; Ruthsdotter, Mary
This guide offers activities for teachers as well as community program planners that enhance the awareness of women's history and women's contributions to history. Although National Women's History Month is celebrated in March, programs need not be limited to that time period. The programs have been organized into three sections. The first section contains 50 activities that can be implemented by school districts, school sites, or individual classrooms including "9 to 5"; "Herstory Parade"; and "Not for Sports Alone." The second section contains 13 programs that can be undertaken cooperatively by schools and community organizations including "Community Resource Women in the Schools"; "Billboard Contest"; and "Suitcase Museums." The third section suggests 37 activities that are appropriate for individuals or community organizations including "Traveling Performers"; "Film Series"; and "Street Banners." All the activities described have been suggested by organizers from communities throughout the United States. Where they have been previously implemented, they have been well received. Ten appendixes (half the document) include: (1) Women's History Potpourri (questions and answers concerning the lives of different women); (2) poster sources; (3) biographical information sources; (4) general information sources; (5) a list of traveling exhibits; (6) a list of national organizations; (7) a list of regional desegregation assistance centers; (8) a list of state Sex Equity specialists; (9) a list of women's history performances; and (10) a copy of a congressional resolution designating March as Women's History Month.
