Continue learning about women's history

One of the best parts of working in education is learning from the students, as often happens with the bulletin board displays that different student groups create. Read on to find out who High School's Feminism Club taught us about for Women’s History Month this year and how you can keep learning about women’s history once March is over.
By Kate Pritchard, Interim Library Director

For Women’s History Month this March, High School students in the Feminism Club put up a bulletin board outside the Hassenfeld Library highlighting six feminists throughout history who fought for women’s rights. Going back to the 1500s, they chose one woman per century: Jane Anger, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Mary Wollstonecraft, Sarojini Naidu, Shirley Chisholm, and Malala Yousafzai.

Hassenfeld Library staff supported this educational effort by ensuring all six women and many more are represented in our collection. These lists contain books about women’s history for all grade levels:

We hope you’ll find something here to pique your interest and help you learn more about women’s history all year long. We hope you’ll visit us soon, and as a reminder, you can always view our entire catalog here. The library’s operating hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lower School students can check out and return books during their weekly library enrichment time. Students in grades 5-12, as well as their parents and guardians, can check out books anytime during regular operating hours.
