March is Women's History Month!! Happy WW!



The Theme for 2011 is ~ "Our History is Our Strength" “Our shared history unites families, communities, and nations. Although women’s history is intertwined with the history shared with men, several factors - social, religious, economic, and biological - have worked to create a unique sphere of women's history.”

Not a totally "Wordless" post, I know ~ but such an important event and some history you should all know ! Enjoy reading up and finding out about Nat'l Women's History month!

I have a collection of family histories...my ancestors have done some amazing things, but mostly just by living the lives they wanted. The histories of the women are sparse...I wish I could have more of their thoughts and feelings also.

Thank you for the reminder about Women's History Month. The poet Muriel Rukeyser has a line about the universe is not made of atoms/it is made of stories, which resonates with this year's theme.

Add me to the list that didn't know it was national women's history month! But shouldn't we be celebrated, seriously?

Happy Monday!

We are truly strength in numbers and it is our history that makes us who we are today. In that we should give our daughters also a history to be proud of~
