    The Women's History Month blog provides an excellent powerpoint presentation that raises many thought-provoking questions about women throughout history. I like this resource because it moves beyond stating what women did or didn't do at specific points in time to asking why this was.

    This list of links to Women's History resource is particularly great because it is not only extensive, but also addresses women's issues in conjunction with significant world issues and historical events ( for example, slavery, the Holocaust, etc.).

    I absolutely love this infographic! Not only are the quotes amazing and a great way to generate classroom discussions, but I also like that it takes a wide historical perspective - demonstrating the impact women have had since recorded history.

    This page is one of my favorite bookmarks for a number reasons: women are represented in myriad fields, there is a wealth of information presented through a range of media, it is well-organized, and more. This page is great for students to use for independent research, or to use for whole group instruction.

This is an excellent starting point for any teacher planning a Women's History unit because of the variety of quality activities and information.
