What are StoryMaps?

StoryMaps are tools for digital exploration. They focus on places while telling a story. As you use a StoryMap, you can travel from one end of the country to another (digitally of course), while viewing photographs and reading stories. StoryMaps are a great way to travel without leaving your front door!

American Women’s Role in Education

Women have played a major role in shaping the American education system. As students, teachers, principals, administrators, and more, women have sought to learn and educate. The places in this StoryMap span from coast to coast and share just a few of the places associated with women’s education in the United States.

The StoryMap was produced in concert with National Park Service partners, including the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers.
