The Society for the Study of American Women Writers has been working with U.S. Studies Online (http://usstudiesonline.com/) to help create a selection of posts to celebrate Women’s History Month in March. The collaboration includes USSO, the Society for the History of Women in the Americas (SHAW), and SSAWW.
