Women's History Month
March is Women's History Month. At Glendale College in Glendale, CA the celebration has steadily grown larger and more elaborate over the last 10 years. On a whim, Associate Professor of Mass Communications Mike Eberts had some of his students search the net for women's history links. The result is this eclectic, student-generated list.
