Not only is it International Women’s Day, it is also Women’s History Month. To celebrate women, we’re sharing two mega resources: Google’s stream of Women’s Rights maps and the official U.S. Women’s History Site. With literally hundreds of links to explore – you could create activities and lessons from these for all month long.
Here are just a few of the geographical resources we were moved by when exploring these sites:
- Visualizing women’s political rights around the world
- The 1920 Suffrage Victory Map
- The prevelance of violence against women
- Images of the suffrage movement Pinterest board
- Women’s History through Photos on Flickr
- Guerrilla Girls: The Advantages of Being a Woman Artist
- American Heroines: The Spirited Women Who Shaped Our Country
- Resourceful Women: Researching and Interpreting American Women’s History (click “view the proceedings” webcast to view)
- The Teacher’s Guide to Women’s History
We hope you use these links (and more) to inspire the young women and men you teach to be conscious of the issues that face women today and to celebrate the women in their lives.
At GISetc.com we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
