Welcome to the educator’s resource for New Jersey women’s history and the educational website of the Women’s Project of New Jersey! Our goal is to provide interesting learning activities based on this extensive database about women in New Jersey history.

It is WPNJ’s mission to facilitate the teaching and learning of New Jersey women’s history in K-12 classrooms around the state, to encourage classroom use of primary historical documents, and to promote the study of New Jersey history. “New Jersey Women’s History” is a virtual library that contains primary documents, photographs, a timeline of notable facts, an extensive bibliography, and links to other relevant sites.
