>March is Women's History Month!

>March is Women's History Month, an important time to pay special attention to the contributions of women to our societies, cultures, and history. As a part of GLSEN's Days of Support, we encourage GSAs and other student organizers to take the time during March to recognize the contributions of women, particularly to the LGBT and safe schools movements. Below are a few things you can do:

Women's History Month Heroes

Throughout March on the Day of Silence Blog we will be recognizing women who have made significant contributions to the LGBT and safe schools movement. Click here and keep reading all month long for new additions!

Share. Our Women's History History Month Heroes downloadable flier has information about six notable Women's History Month heroes. It's perfect for sharing. Print off copies and pass them out to members of your GSA, teachers and fellow classmates. Click here to download.

Post. We want to know who your heroes are! If you know a woman who has contributed to the LGBT and safe schools movement, post about them on the Gay-Straight Alliances Facebook page. You can also tweet your heroes to @DayofSilence using the #GLSENWHM hash tag!

NEW! Women's History Activity Zine!

Zines, self-published mini-magazines, have played a big part in the Women's movement, and that's why we created a Women's History Month Activity Zine, filled with information and activities. Download this resource for yourself or print out lots of copies for all the members of your GSA, fellow classmates and school faculty and staff! Click here to download.
