Victoria who???

This certainly is an historic month for women......Hillary is a viable contender for the nomination of presidential candidate! (although she's not the first woman to run for president....that honor goes to Victoria Woodhull back in 1872) Bet you never heard of her, right? You're not alone, and this is precisely why we need Women's History Month....

The month of March was established as Women's History Month by Congress in 1987 to honor amazing women who, unfortunately, have so often been written out of history despite great achievements. The 2008 WHM theme is Women's Art: Women's Vision, celebrating "...the originality, beauty, imagination, and multiple dimensions of women’s lives...".
