March is National Women’s History Month      

Refrigerators, chocolate chip cookies and windsheild wipers: what would we do without them?  These common items, familiar to everyone, were all invented by women.  Kevlar (used to make bulletproof vests), fire escapes and life rafts: life-saving inventions all created by women.  Women founded the American Red Cross and the Girl Scouts of America.  Women have made scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs and let’s not forget that they held this country together during World War II.      

It’s time to learn something about the women who helped form our country, its history and the world we live in today.

Learn more about women’s history by visiting Harper College Library’s research guide on Women’s History.
