Women’s History Resources

    As a kid I loved to read biographies, and my only requirement was that it be about girls.  My public library had the series Childhood of Famous Americans, which in hindsight weren’t really biographies but fictionalized accounts of the childhoods of famous people.  I read every single title in the series, minus the ones about boys.  I remember Babe Didrikson:  Girl Athlete, Kate Douglas Wiggin; The Little Schoolteacher; Molly Pitcher; Girl Patriot.  My favorite was Susan Anthony; Girl Who Dared. 

     Susan and other women are still exciting to read about.  Check out Marching with Aunt Susan : Susan B. Anthony and the Fight for Women’s Suffrage written by Claire Rudolf Murphy.  Want more women’s history?  The CRC has hundreds of titles for checkout. 

   Need web resources?  Start at Kidlit Celebrates Women’s History Month.  You’ll find great book suggestions and links.

Happy reading, Kathy
