In recognition of Women's History Month in March, I asked several Red Room authors to write about women who inspired them to become writers themselves. It was my pleasure to shepherd these articles to The Huffington Post's books page, AOL's Black Voices, AOL News, or to Red Room's Originals collection. I'm grateful to all the authors—from Alice Hoffman and Rebecca Wells to Michael Boatman and Dolen Perkins-Valdez—who wrote for Women's History Month, and to all bloggers who wrote about other famous, inspiring women in the creative challenge my colleague Huntington Sharp spearheaded a couple of weeks ago.
As I wrote in my wrap-up of Black History Month in February, Women's History Month is only thirty-one days; however, these women and men post diverse, exciting writing about feminist subject every week here on Red Room, and, again, I hope you'll enjoy exploring them all as much as I did.
I hope you'll read each one, and leave a comment on their Red Room blog about their literary heroes and your own.
