Celebrating National Women's History Month

March 1 marks the start of National Women's History Month, and AAUW has strong ties to this annual celebration of women history makers. AAUW is an established historic organization that has helped — and continues to help — women make history.With that in mind, AAUW is excited to partner with the National Women's History Project in its 30th anniversary year, which has the theme "Writing Women Back into History." There will be many ways for AAUW members and supporters to get involved this year, and AAUW's Women's History Month celebrations will include the following: A Flickr stream of photos If you have photos of a Women's History Month event to share, please upload them to AAUW's Flickr stream by e-mailing the photos to mess90zap [at] photos.flickr.com*. Please be sure to include a short caption for each photo in the subject line or in the text of your e-mail message and indicate that the photos are for National Women’s History Month. Women's History Month-related photos will be available for viewing directly on the Flickr account. A YouTube video campaign AAUW staff members will be filming short videos about women they are honoring during Women's History Month that will be uploaded to AAUW's YouTube channel. If you would like to share a Women's History Month-related video that you’ve made, just upload it to your own account and send in the link via e-mail. We will collect videos from AAUW branches and members and online supporters and share them through the blog and/or Facebook. ...more
