About Us
The Vermont Women's History Project  was initiated by the Vermont Commission on Women as a part of a nationwide effort to promote the critical roles women have played in our nation's history. The project is now run by the Vermont Historical Society and guided by a Steering Committee and advisors comprised of historians and representatives of partner organizations.
