March is National Women's History Month and we have compiled a list of some of our
recommendations in that category. In our day to day lives we may forget that the telling of history can
sometimes be slanted based on the perspective of those that record it. The National Women's History
Project sponsors Women's History Month with the goal of highlighting the stories of women that have helped
define the United States. Though figures like Jackie Kennedy and Princess Diana come to mind our
selections may surprise you as they also bring to light some pretty impressive women who dared to dream of
space, who worked on civil rights issues as well as others who survived unjust imprisonment. What is sad
is that their names and stories were lost but we are fortunate to at least listen to their stories
We are providing the coupon code women in honor of Women's History Month.
