Over the years, we've featured stories of powerful women—mothers, grandmothers, community organizers, activists, peacemakers, and educators. As author Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote, “Women are the real architects of society.”

To celebrate Women's History Month, we've put together a collection of stories which document women around the world, many of whom are working to preserve their cultural traditions. This collection includes the following: photographs of women of the Kara tribe from southwestern Ethiopia in the Omo River Valley home to 12 indigenous cultures, a film about a Salvadoran immigrant who fled the U.S. as a teenager during the Salvadoran Civil War, and a film about a Native American woman who is the last speaker of her language, among others. These women are role models, dedicated to the revitalization of their cultures for future generations.

You can now create your own collection on our platform and publish a link to share with your students and colleagues. What collection will you create?
