WHRC Call for Articles
January 30, 2017
The Women’s History and Resource Center (WHRC) is looking towards the past and thinking about the future as we prepare for Women’s History Month. In celebration of Women’s History Month, the upcoming WHRC Newsletter will be focused on highlighting past clubwomen of GFWC, and the ways in which they have made history and empowered other women. Do you have a story about a remarkable clubwoman or club from the past that you’re willing to share? Consider submitting your story for the March edition of the WHRC Newsletter. Ideal articles will be between 250-500 words. Accompanying photographs are encouraged, but not required, and articles should be submitted to WHRC Manager Alyssa Constad by February 9 at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not be able to print all articles due to newsletter length restrictions, but Alyssa will contact each club or individual to confirm that their submission has been received. Please feel free to contact Alyssa if you have any further questions. The WHRC Committee looks forward to learning more about your club’s history!
