More Women's History: Websites

Thanks to a parent who sent me the links to these very important websites about women's history, health, and reproductive freedom:

National Women's History Project

NWHP is an educational orgainization dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the history and many accomplishments of women by providing information and resources. See "Resources" for history of the women's rights movement, honored Latinas, Pathbreakers, biographical sketches, a women's history quiz, and more. Sign up for monthly free e-newsletter highlighting historic events and birthdays of current month. A great site for teachers and students.

United Nations Population Fund

For news, events, and links about the international development agency that promotes health and equal opportunity for all see:

34 Million Friends of UNFPA

A grassroots organization formed in response to Bush Administration's 2002 funding cut of to the United Nations Population Fund based on false claims that adults were forcibly sterilized or forced to have abortions. Despite the fact that the U.S. State Department found no evidence to support these claims, the U. S. has continued to withhold funding from UNFA.
