The Library of Congress has gathered a dynamite collection of multimedia resources online for use by educators in teaching during Women's History Month. You'll find it all at http://www.loc.gov/topics/womenshistory/index.html. The header from the site states: "The Library of Congress recognized the wisdom and tenacity of women throughout U.S. history, highlighting the 2007 theme, ‘Generations of Women Moving History Forward.'" And further into the site, in the welcome note from Librarian of Congress James Billington, "In celebration of Women's History Month, the Library has developed this new Web site highlighting the many resources on women's history and culture available from our extensive online collections."

A sampling from the entry page includes these gems:

* Women's Voices: video and/or audio recording of
Margaret MacArthur—Ballads and Songs from Vermont
"Women Who Dare" series author Janice E. Ruth
Amy Uyematsu speaking at the 2006 National Book Festival
* Articles "Featured Women," including suffragist Susan B. Anthony and former Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor

… and lots more.
