For this week's challenge we continue our celebration of International Women's Day (take a moment, read yesterday's post --there are some wonderful comments about some wonderful women!) and focus on Women's History Month which is celebrated in March America.
2011's Women's History Month theme is "Our History is our Strength." The National Women's History Project further explains, “Our shared history unites families, communities, and nations. Although women’s history is intertwined with the history shared with men, several factors - social, religious, economic, and biological - have worked to create a unique sphere of women's history.” The Books for Walls Project invites you to share books about women's history!

Now, take the Herstory Challenge and tell us about a book whether fiction, non-fiction, poetry, essays, picture books -you name it. Tell us about the book and why a person seeking women's history might want to read it!
