As we celebrate Women’s History Month, we at UNC Press offer up this appreciation of the life and work of Gerda Lerner, one of the founders of Women’s History Month.  This post appeared on the UNC Press blog back in April 2010, in anticipation of her 90th birthday.

Read the original post here.

You can see from the many comments how beloved she was, and we at UNC Press continue her legacy by keeping in print her three books with us:

The Majority Finds Its Past:  Placing Women in History

The Grimké Sisters from South Carolina:  Pioneers for Women’s Rights and Abolition

Living with History / Making Social Change
