National Women's History Month, KSL Research Spotlight
March is National Women's History Month and celebrates women's historic achievements throughout the country's history. KSL's March Research Spotlight features the project and offers Case information resources for further gender, social, and women's studies.
On the NWHM site you'll discover that U.S. Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins witnessed a tragic factory fire in 1911 and when appointed to the Cabinet in 1933 instituted important labor legislation. The Labor Movement began as early as 1765 with the first society of working women. Women participated in the Suffrage Movement, Civil Rights, Women's Rights, and the Environmental Movement to improve society.
The Research Spotlight Resource Center leads you to biographies, speeches, organizations, and a quick History Quiz. You can also get highlights and test your women's history IQ from the 2011 brochure.
