Biography Resource Center celebrates Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month, and all month long both Gale and BioRC will be celebrating the daughters (hey, every woman is a daughter, you know) that have made contributions to our world, be they large or small. Keep an eye out for the rotating BioRC spotlight on our homepage, which currently features Pearl S. Buck, the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature (1938). She was beaten to the overall female punch by Sigrid Unset (Norway, 1928), Grazia Deledda (Italy, 1926), and Selma Lagerlöf (Sweden, 1909).

Aside from our own activities around WHM, Gale is offering free resources (including a number of biographies from our collection) for teachers, students, librarians, and library patrons — which we’re pretty sure encompasses the entire planetary human population — to use to educate themselves or others about the women who have made the world a better place.
