    For Lydia Chapin Taft, Alice Paul, and all pioneering women for women’s rights…THANK YOU!

  3. Shawn says:

    Is there a male history month or like white history month it is not PC?

  4. Touching History says:

    Isn’t it interesting how Women’s History Month just flies by with hardly a notice, but Black History and Latino History has special programs and commercials featurettes? Many of the wars, from the Revolutionary War through the World Wars and beyond, couldn’t have been won without the strength of women taking care of things on the home front and the assisting on the battlelines. Not to mention all the other contributions we made in all other aspects of life. Again, swept under the rug. And yes, Shawn, You’re right.

  5. Gary Zaetz says:

    Among the 74000 Americans still missing from World War II are 21 American servicewomen, listed below. It is to America’s shame that the remains of these courageous women and of all the other American MIAs of World War II are still unrecovered after so many years, largely due to the grossly insufficient funds our Government allocates to our military’s remains recovery program. In honor of Women’s History Month (2011), please demand from our Congressional representatives that our Government start adequately funding this program.

    Aloha Baker was a pionerring woman who toured the globe in the 1920’s in a makeshift automobile. She and her husband wanted to unite the world through filiming of all cultures. Her films were shown in movie theatres throughout the world. She was the first person to use film to create travel/environmental logs. Her films are in the Smithsonian. A real pioneering woman with a vision for world unity and the environment. .

    GAG, these are the best we have to offer as female “role models?”

  9. linda says:

    I am EXTREMELY offended that actresses get a nod while REAL women of history are left off this list!!!!! It is disgusting! Leave it to the media to make a mess of what we are trying to teach our daughters. There are sooooo many things wrong with this, the first being that “Women in History” is relagated to the entertainment section!

  10. MC MC says:

    Uuum. I can see how most of the women made the list, but Tyra Banks, Susan Lucci, and that crackhead Whitney Houston??? Come on!!!
