Table Talk: Celebrating Women’s History Month

Each week, The Huffington Post presents a compelling topic to spark discussion at your dinner table.
March is Women’s History Month. The National Women’s History Project has declared the theme for 2013 to be “Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.” One hundred years ago on March 3, 1913, a group of women marched in Washington, D.C., to demand their right to vote. Ultimately, they won with the passage of the nineteenth amendment.
Tonight, let’s talk about the progress we have made toward equality as a society, and the importance of knowing our history.
Questions for discussion:
* Who are some female role models that you look up to?
* Why do you think it took as long as it did for women to get the right to vote?
* What are you doing, in school or as a family, to celebrate Women’s History Month?
