Did you know only 13 percent of historical figures in US history textbooks are women? Through our award-winning education team and innovative Center for Women's History, we're thrilled to launch a groundbreaking new digital curriculum guide to help educators bring the diverse stories of American women into the classroom like never before. Created in partnership with IBM, the Women & the American Story (WAMS) website is rich with primary sources, images, life stories, essays, and learning activities for students of all ages.
