Women in History Websites


bullet Distinguished Women of Past and Present
http://www.distinguishedwomen.com
This site has biographies of women who contributed to our culture in many different ways. There are writers, educators, scientists, heads of state, politicians, civil rights crusaders, artists, entertainers, and others. Some were alive hundreds of years ago and some are living today. We've heard of some of them, while many more have been ignored by history book writers. I'd like to acknowledge as many as I can.

bullet Guerilla Girls

They do great talks live and their posters are fun and they do have a lot of good info on the lack of equal representation of womena artists in galleries and museums.
