Subject: EOA and Women's History Month
Celebrate Women's History month with the Encyclopedia of Alabama. EOA spotlights 18 of its entries on Alabama women in the "Features" section, which is accessible through the EOA homepage. www.EncyclopediaofAlabama.org.
The accomplishments of Alabama women resonate across the state, the nation, and the world. Three have received the nation's highest civilian awards: Helen Keller, the Congressional Medal of Freedom; Rosa Parks, the Congressional Gold Medal; and Harper Lee, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Alabama women have broken barriers in the military, the law, education, and sports; influenced politics, institutions, and religion; and enriched lives through music, literature, and art.
The Encyclopedia of Alabama is a comprehensive online reference work on the state’s history, culture, geography, and natural environment. It is available for free from any computer with Internet access. EOA is similar to a traditional print encyclopedia in its emphasis on authoritative content based on sound scholarship. But, the online format makes it a modern reference tool offering video, audio, graphics, and hyperlinks.
