Extraordinary Women: Honoring Women’s History

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

History has a tendency to hide groups that aren’t in power at any given time; because of this we often have to dig a bit deeper to find what was happening. Women’s History Month honors the undersung females of our past; here are a few of my favourite selections from the SLPL catalog about these women.

  • You Forgot Your Skirt, Amelia Bloomer!  Shana Corey
  • Almost Astronauts: 13 Women Who Dared to Dream  Tanya Lee Stone
  • Me, Frida  Amy Novesky
  • Amelia Lost: The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart  Candace Fleming
  • Skit-Scat Raggedy Cat: Ella Fitzgerald  Roxane Orgill
  • Sweethearts of Rhythm: The Story of the Greatest All-Girl Swing Band in the World  Marilyn Nelson & Jerry Pinkney
