Women’s History Month Begins Today

March 1 marks the beginning of Women’s History Month, a celebration of the accomplishments of women throughout history, and a reminder of the challenges that women worldwide still face. In celebration of the month, the Feminist Majority Foundation launched a special Women’s History Month Section of its website, featuring the Feminist Chronicles, a fifty-year outline of the major accomplishments of the women’s movement, a daily history quiz, and much more. This year’s theme, Women of Courage, praises women who broke barriers in various professions and spheres, from political leaders to suffrage activists to labor organizers to inventors.
