National Women's History Project
Do you Know All You Want To Know???

Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, 
but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals. -
Why Do We Need It?

March is National Women's History. Have you ever wondered why there is a need for Black History Month? Hispanic History Month? Confederate History Month? And, finally, Women's History Month? Have you ever wondered why all those are necessary? I say that they are necessary because of the separatism that is the very lifeblood of American culture. If American culture didn't depend so heavily on separatism and all these other issues that we talked about--and will continue to talk about--then there would never be a need for Women's History Month, because women would have never been written out of history. There would be no need for African American History Month because African Americans would never been written out of history. So, this is what you have to look at if you should ever wonder why we need all these months or weeks or occasions. Read more. I dare you!

Today we are starting our conversation and so will ask you a question or two about this month's topic: Do you know all that you want to know about the history of Women? Do you know all that you want to know about the accomplishments of Women? Do you know all that you want to know about the health of Women or, do you even want to know any more about how it is that more Women and Children live in poverty than Men? If you want to know any of this, then you are at the right place.

For a moment, let us pause at a scripture: 2nd Timothy 2:15 is the instruction to ‘study’. It says further that it by this means you will ‘show thyself approved’. Remember, study is the operative word. If you've ever heard me talking on the study is very crucial to me; so, therefore, study! Study! And Study. It is its own reward, kinda like unrequited love. J

It is your duty to learn your history, your culture, your religion, and teach them to your young, because your children need to know.

There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." (Keynote speech at Celebrating Inspiration luncheon with the WNBA's All-Decade Team, 2006)”     
Madeleine Albright

I am glad that Women's History Month follows African American History Month because there's always a need to teach these things to your young. Young means anybody you know who doesn't already know.

Facts; Just The Facts.

The National Women's History Project was founded in 1981 in Santa Rosa California. The chief aim of this group was to highlight and celebrate Women in history and their achievements in various areas of enterprise. The NWHP has an annual theme, which indicates the aim for the year: This year’s theme: We believe that Our History Is Our Strength
Stay Tuned; More to come...
