Awww Monday ~ Did you know?

March is 'National Women's History Month!!
A Resolution was passed in 1987 to expand the celebration of Women's History to the entire month of March & has been approved every year since then!

The theme for 2010, which is also the 30th Anniversary celebration, is "Writing Women Back into History". . . . . . "It often seems that the history of women is written in invisible ink. Even when recognized in their own times, women are frequently left out of the history books. To honor the 2010 theme, the National Women's History Project is highlighting pivotal themes from previous years. Each of these past themes recognizes a different aspect of women’s achievements, from ecology to art, and from sports to politics.
Now, more than ever, the work of the NWHP needs to continue and expand. Each new generation needs to draw information and inspiration from the last.So, please join the NWHP this month in recognizing the importance of women in history!!

Have a wonderful week!

I had no idea there was a women's History month. We all learn something every day. I think it is a great idea though.
Thanks so much for visiting our blog. We each learned something today.

As with everyone else, I didn't know there was a women's history month. How cool! Wouldn't it just go that way that the women's history month is unknown. However, it takes women like you to bring this event to light to those of us who are interested. Thank you for that :)

Oh, and I like Monday Moodboard, too. However, I can't take credit for the cool name :)
