)-- "Each time a girl opens a book and reads a womanless history, she learns she is worth less," says Myra Pollack Sadker. Still, there are authors such as The Wright Scoop - Sylvia Hoehns Wright who in her book A Path Worn Smooth provide an invigorating read for all women - mother, grandmother or daughter.
Dedicating her book to the people of Wright’s hometown community, Laurel Historic District of Virginia, Wright wants readers to walk on a path worn smooth by generational expectation. Savor nostalgia for the places that are near and dear to her heart, recall family traditions and more importantly, renew experiences. Challenging all to celebrate heritage because it’s more than a possession, it is a gift; the birthright of our children.
National Women's History Project -
Our HISTORY is Our Strength is the theme for 2011. This year, rather than highlighting national figures, the NWHP - www.nwhp.org - encourages individuals to discover stories about the women in their own families and communities. Knowing the challenges these women faced, grappled with, and overcame can be an enormous source of strength to all of us. Founded in 1980, NWHP's mission is to recognize and celebrate the diverse and historic accomplishments of women by providing information and educational materials and programs.
