Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate ordinary and extraordinary women, explore women’s achievements and struggles throughout history, and acknowledge all the amazing contributions of women to our society. The 2022 theme for Women’s History Month is “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” as a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also to recognize the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided healing and hope throughout history. This theme proudly honors those who, in public and private life, provide healing and promote hope for the betterment of all.
Springhurst Library Media Specialist Lauren Rodriguez, Middle/High School Library Media Specialist Ellen Elsen, and K-8 Literacy Coordinator Michelle Yang-Kaczmarek have teamed up with Dobbs Ferry Public Library Children’s Librarian Gina Elbert to create this resource list to help your classes dive deeper into the contribution of women to society. Our hope is that this history will not just stay in March but will be celebrated all year long, highlighting the determination, courage and perseverance of women.
