Women around the world are invited to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the National Women's History Month by submitting stories of women who made their mark on history.

Dana Point, CA, March 6, 2010 (PressReleasePoint) - March is National Red Cross month, National Irish-Heritage Month, National Nutrition Month and National Noodle but what women around the world are celebrating is the 30th anniversary of National Women's History Month.

In 1980, National Women's History Project was founded in Santa Rosa, California by Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett and Bette Morgan to broadcast women's historical achievements. The NWHP started by leading a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women's History Month, now celebrated across the land.

Today, the NWHP is known nationally as the only clearinghouse providing information and training in multicultural women's history for educators, community organizations, and parents-for anyone wanting to expand their understanding of women contributions to U. S. history. As their informative website proclaims: "Each time a girl opens a book and reads a womanless history, she learns she is worth less."-Myra Pollack Sadker

To celebrate this anniversary Eileen McDargh and Eunice Parisi-Carew have created the website at to celebrate the past, chart the present and explore the future for women leaders. Every day during March (and continuing throughout the year), this site will feature a different woman of "history". Keep in mind our definition of history: a story of the past that helps us understand the present--including our most personal and intimate present. We can't ignore the influence of our biological sisters as well as our soul sisters, the lessons of our mothers and grandmothers, the impact of known and little known women.

Visitors are encouraged to send tributes to the women from their history about women who didn't make it in the history books but should have.
