History Hits


From the National Women's History Project's blog, Writing Women Back into History, come these tidbits and reminders:

September includes the anniversaries of Billie Jean King defeating male chauvinist, Bobbie Riggs, on the tennis court in 1973 and Sandra Day O’Connor being sworn in as the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court eight years later. The first weeks of September also include the play-offs for the WNBA.

GREAT hooks for anyone considering writing an op-ed this month!
