Welcome to The Clio Project | The Clio Project: Worldwide Women's History on the Web

"The Clio Project: Worldwide Women's History on the Web was launched in 2005 by a group of historians, teachers, and web designers committed to making worldwide women's history for educators available on the Internet.

 

Although women's history websites abound on the web, most of them focus on American and European women's history and are aimed at college-level students and academic historians. The mission of The Clio Project is to provide classroom-ready curriculum materials for secondary teachers and their students on the history of women worldwide."
