Celebrating Women's History Month

As you can tell from my #WomensHistoryReads series and pieces like this one on BookBub that are timed to Women’s History Month, I think the month is worth celebrating. But when Pamela D. Toler, author of Women Warriors: An Unexpected History — which you should definitely pick up — interviewed me and included a question about the month itself, I took the opportunity to dig a little deeper into my thoughts, assumptions and hopes for what Women’s History Month means.

Part of my answer: “It’s no excuse not to call attention to great books by and/or about women the rest of the year, but it’s an excellent occasion to dig deeper and shout louder.”

You can read the complete answer, and the rest of the interview, at History in the Margins.
