Getting Ready for National Women's History Month 2013
|If we don’t promote women’s history, who will? Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination|
Here are a few suggestions for getting ready for celebrating National Women's History Month in your community:
Ask your children’s teacher what is planned for National Women’s History Month.
Suggest that your local newspaper, radio and TV programs honor teachers.
Email a copy of our 2013 Press Kit, which you'll find in the Women's History Month section on our website, to your local newspapers, radio stations, your organization's newsletter editor, commentators on talk radio, and TV programs like Oprah, Ellen, Tyra, Rachel Ray or any of the morning show programs. Give them as much information as possible and help them spread the word.
Plan a reception, luncheon, or event that honors women in your community who are pioneering roles models whose lives need to be part of the historic record.
Invite a woman from history to be at your celebration program. See the NWHP listings of Women's History Performers. There may be a performer in your community that you can plan a special program with or one of the listed State or National Performers can travel across the country to be at your event.
Invite a special speaker. See the NWHP listings of Authors and Presenters or Our Distinguished Speakers Bureau these presenters can make history come alive with their intellect and enthusiastic presentation about a specific area of women’s History. Contact your local high school or college and ask one of their most dynamic teachers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) to come and speak to your group about the importance of these fields in the 21st century.
