CFC: Women in History

On November 14, 2008, Lt. General Ann E. Dunwoody became the first woman to be promoted as a Four-Star General. In 1970, Anna May Hays, was the first woman to be promoted as a general. WHIJEC asks "What does it mean to you?"

The Women's Heritage International Joint Exchange Competition(WHIJEC)'s mission is to work with schools in U.S. and other countries, to introduce young people to the contributions of women to local, national and world history,
which are still largely absent in historical accounts, especially in the P20 educational system (kindergarten through graduate school).

Through bicultural collaboration using the Internet and online technologies, participating
students can learn about Women's Heritage, have exchanges of country, culture, and language as well develop and hone telecollaboration skills.

Recognizing the lack of historical accounts of women in history, we are asking for you help and support. If you have a comment or a reflection or personal story as a woman or about a woman, which you would like to share with those interested in participating in the WHIJEC, please visit and blog about it at

If you have questions or would like to know more about the Women's Heritage International Joint Exchange Competition, please email or email President, Alfred Griffin at
