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
