Women’s History Month Facts – Birthdays

We’ve come across a unique web site that documents Women’s History.  The National Women’s History Project (NWHP) is a wonderful site that documents history for women through the years and celebrates them.

 Based on the site.. and something we thought about.. we wanted to at least honor some birthdays…Naturally, we’ve missed birthdays that honor women’s history month… so we thought of at least honoring those birthdays this week.
