Women’s History Month provides great teaching moments to learn about inspiring women, especially from PBS sources such as American Experience and PBS LearningMedia.
American Experience brings to life compelling stories about women who lead advancements in science, technology, politics, sports and activism—often fighting against inequity and opposition. You’ll find films, interviews, articles, and image galleries in the Women in American History Collection and more resources about women at the American Experience homepage.
A Women’s History Month Collection at PBS LearningMedia provides still more powerful resources from the award-winning documentary series Independent Lens. By pairing film modules with standards-based lesson plans, you can teach about today’s most vital social issues . The films tell powerful, personal stories about women and girls around the world, and the activities encourage students to learn and understand international struggles and take an active role in addressing local concerns.
