I have collected information from a number of different websites for both basic facts and links to articles about different events or women. Although facts are not subject to copyright, I want to acknowledge my sources as well as give you a place to begin additional research if you find something that catches your interest. There are many wonderful resources on women’s history. My intention on this site is to collect many of these in one place as a starting point.

I have used many different sources, but began with Wikipedia Historical Anniversary pages. From there I used other women’s history sources or “today in history” sites for additional information. I also chose to use Wikipedia’s basic format of events, births, and deaths. Most of my images are from there as well. I have used only public domain images or those licensed under a Creative Commons license in the United States. Other countries have different copyright laws, so before reusing an image it is your responsibility to check the original source and determine whether or not it is free of copyright in your country.

When I began, I did not include links to image sources. I am in the process of adding these to all of the images. However, sources may change, especially on Wikipedia where images are being reviewed, added, removed, etc. If you see a dead link, or an image you believe to be copyrighted, please leave me a comment or send me a message. I will remove any questionable images.
