Women’s History Month Roundup

Women’s History Month is one of my favorite months of the year.  I love March, because it’s my birthday month, because the daffodils are up, at least in Central Texas, and because we celebrate women. As a feminist, it makes me happy.  Of course, I wish we celebrated women every month, but we’ve got to start somewhere.  

The links below are a gathering of some of the best sites I’ve found and that have been sent to me by others.  First up, sent in by a reader, is this fantastic online exhibit featuring my favorite authoress, you know her, you love her, Jane Austen.
