Women Who Changed History

Women Who Changed History

There are wonderful stories to explore about amazing women who changed the course of history, such as Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African-American female in space; Amelia Earhart, pioneering aviator; and Melba Pattillo, one of the nine students who volunteered to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Besides offering those stories, this site by Scholastic includes profiles of suffragists and many activities that will enable students to both appreciate female contributions and to participate in Women's History Month.
