It’s Amazing How Much Women’s History You Find When You Look For It


Last week was the 2015 AASLH Annual Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. More importantly, it was the debut of the new Women’s History Affinity Group (WHAG)! We’ve been hard at work all year to ensure women’s history was well represented at the conference, and special thanks to my co-chair Page Harrington, Executive Director of Sewall-Belmont House & Museum.

To test out Louisville and how much women’s history we could find, we did a #WmnHistHunt on twitter during an evening event and a walking tour. Granted, the walking tour was about Suffrage so the decks were already stacked there. Nevertheless, when you’ve got our eyes open, you can find women’s history all around you.

Please give a follow to all the women and their institutions that participated: Page Harrington, Jennifer Krafchik, Megan Byrnes, Lori ObsorneSusan FerentinosDeborah L HughesSarah JencksSewall-BelmontS. B. Anthony MuseumWomens History Sites.
