Women in History



The AAUW (formerly the American Association of University Women) Thousand Oaks Branch supports local schools to plan their celebration of Women’s History Month in March. The goals of the Women's History Project are to introduce students to the wealth of women’s history often left out of history books and to raise the awareness, competence and confidence of young girls. Each year’s packet includes scripts, photos, costume tips, prop ideas and references to assist the women and/or girls who will be portraying five extraordinary women. 

Women in History Performance

During the month of March, Banyan proudly presents a Women in History performance. This is a wonderful opportunity for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to portray an important woman from our past or present day history. These women have opened doors that our young women now freely walk through, and this is a great chance to honor them.

Sign-up sheets will be available in the Banyan front office from January 16-19.  Please remember to sign up early to join to group of your choice!

For additional information about the program and opportunities to get involved, please download the 2018 Women in History flyer.
