The Georgia Historical Society is dedicated to providing standards-based, educational resources that explore Georgia and American History through the experiences of diverse people. In 2017 the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) published a study that “examines the status of women’s history in state-level social studies standards.” The report found that women’s experiences, stories, and histories are often neglected in US history state standards. The Georgia Historical Society has created an online guide that highlights existing GHS resources that help tell the full story of Georgia history through the perspectives of women.
Explore the people, places, and events covered in Georgia’s educational standards through the lens of women’s stories and find out why their voices are vital to understanding the full story.
