Lots to Learn in Women’s History Month

By Statepoint



With 155.8 million females in the United States, there is plenty that can be learned from women, especially considering they outnumber their male counterparts by four million. And with women outnumbering men two-to-one in the 85-and-over age group, women’s history certainly is relevant. All Americans can learn more about that history in March, which originally was established as National Women’s History Week in 1981. That week later became a month. Learning about women’s history can be particularly insightful today, an age in which women account for 55 percent of college students and 66 percent of women of voting age went to the polls in the 2008 presidential election, compared to 62 percent of men.
