The National Women's History Project was founded in California in 1980. They provide information and training in multicultural women's history "for anyone wanting to expand their understanding of women's contributions to U.S. history".

They are a fine resource for learning about Women's History, especially that part of the history that took place in the United States.

Check out their website for more information. While you're there you might want to Test Your Knowledge of Women's History. Sample questions include:

Who was the first African-American woman poet to have her works published?
What was the first Hispanic woman to serve as U.S. Treasurer?

What woman was invtied to teach nuclear physics at Princeton University, even though no female students were allowed to study there?
