Recognizing Exceptional Women Check with teachers and librarians about activities planned for March’s National Women’s History Month and use these as a jumping-off point to coordinate a related cafeteria promotion. Your students may not realize that Queen Victoria ruled the largest empire in the world or that Victoria Woodhull was the first woman to run for U.S. President—back in 1872, before women in America even had the right to vote! Visit http://tinyurl.com/7a4lupj for impressive facts to include on take-home menus or post on displays. But don’t stop there—give each week of the month a theme (such as Women in Science, Women in Politics, Women in Sports and Women in the Media) and develop designated activities (special menu names, decorations, activities, prizes) for each week. Check out the online exhibits of the National Women’s History Museum (www.nwhm.org) for more inspiration.
