Today in Women’s History

Explore what happened today in Women’s History.  Select a Month below or click to go to the main page and use the pull down menus. The year is now complete with a page for every date. This doesn’t mean it won’t change over time as I learn more and add more women. I hope you enjoy it.

I would love it if you would let me know of people or events who should be added. As a rule I haven’t added births after 1940 or deaths after 1980 unless someone is very prominent. These aren’t hard and fast rules, but it would quickly become a list of celebrities as opposed to historical figures if I didn’t make some cut off. I hope you enjoy the site and add anyone you would like to see added in the comments. Thank you!

  1. Bessie Coleman attended the “…Ecole d’Aviation des Freres Caudron at Le Crotoy in Somme for a 10 month flight training course. Flying a French Nieuport Type 82, Bessie finished the course three months early and obtained her Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) license on June 15, 1921–the first U.S. woman of any race to do so directly.
