March is Women's History Month

For Women's History Month in March, the Ruthe Winegarten Foundation for Texas Women's History is partnering with KUT public radio in Austin to present a daily "moment" in Texas women's history. Each day for the entire month, KUT will broadcast a 90-second story about such women as Bessie Coleman, Angelina, Oveta Culp Hobby, and Jovita Idar.
The KUT website will provide visuals, scripts, "brain teasers," and a map showing the various places these women were active.

For those not within KUT's range, listeners can tune in via the internet at . All items from the KUT website, including the 31 daily recordings, will be on the Winegarten Foundation’s website after March.
The Ruthe Winegarten Foundation for Texas Women's history is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization designed to foster interest and research in Texas Women's History. It sponsors the website Women's History Month in March and the Ruthe Winegarten Award for the best research paper in Texas women's history for the Junior and Senior divisions at Texas History Day.

Its name honors the woman considered the "mother of Texas women's history." Winegarten was a Fellow of the Texas State Historical Association, a tireless researcher and speaker, and an advocate for the collection and dissemination of women's stories who published over 20 books, videos, and a musical, and won the Liz Carpenter [book] Award twice.
