The Women’s Legacy Project is an outgrowth of the work and writings of Nancy Hill. Trained as an anthropologist who hung out and worked in libraries and museums for years and years until parenting, helping Hubby with his career, and being on call for work 24/7 became too much as I began to wrestle with peri-menopause and some very old demons. Working for myself allowed the flexibility necessary to blog, engage as an activist, and be available as necessary to my daughter when she was going through the preteen and teen years.
Nancy became involved in women’s blogging networks in 2007. After about five years of learning and networking in these nationally distributed groups, she decided that she wanted to help women set up blogs and get their voices and ideas out there. The Tucson Women Bloggers Meetup was launched to test out the helping idea and see if there was enough interest to support a meetup group. There was.
The logical progression of that was to then expand this to a larger, online group. This site is an outgrowth of that desire.
