Fearless Females and Women’s History Month

March is National Women’s History Month in the United States and for the fourth year in a row, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist has created 31 blogging Prompts for each day of the month of March (please see here for further details) called Fearless Females.  I’m a few days late in joining in, but will start from the beginning and hopefully will be caught up by the end of the weekend.  I can’t promise to blog on each of the prompts, but will do as many as possible.

Just a side note from me as a Canadian, Women’s History Month in Canada is actually celebrated in October and was designated as such in 1992, with the highlight being Person’s Day on October 18th.  October was selected because of the historical significance of the “Persons Case” decision of 1929, a landmark victory in the struggle of Canadian women for equality.
