On March 8, 2017, Columbia University and the Center for Women’s History at the New-York Historical Society will launch the first part of the Women Have Always Worked MOOC, Women Have Always Worked: The U.S. Experience 1700 – 1920, on the edX platform. This course is free and open to all. Women Have Always Worked is the first full-length MOOC on the history of women in America. The course introduces students to historians’ work to uncover the place of women and gender in America’s past. Part Two of the course will be released in early June.
If you’re interested in the topic of charter schools and are open-minded on this subject, LWVMA is looking for members to join the committee. The goal is to develop a policy for LWVMA to use in advocating on the subject. Members are researching and preparing material for local Leagues to use next fall for consensus meetings around the state. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
