Women's History Month - Great Georgia Women Worth Studying

Women's History Month

Well-behaved women seldom make history so the saying goes. There are many women from Georgia who embody that phrase. Women like Lorna Weeks who sued the Southern Company in the late 60's for refusing to give her a deserved promotion. Or women like the late Dr. Leila Denmark, the oldest practicing pediatrician. Or Lucy Laney who established the first school for black children in Augusta, GA

In teaching your students about the contributions and achievements of women, try these resources on for size. And let them know it's okay for them to cause a stir.
