It’s no secret that women’s contributions to history haven’t always been acknowledged or celebrated. Here, we’re shining a spotlight on women in history and everything they’ve accomplished for themselves and for future generations, all while managing to make it look easy.
Let’s take a look at the women who fought for equality, from the suffragettes who tirelessly advocated for the right to vote to Harriet Tubman, who helped free hundreds of slaves via the Underground Railroad. There are also innumerable little-known women who made an impact but have been largely forgotten by the history books, such as Trota of Salerno, the 12th-century gynecologist who stood up for the importance of women’s health, and Stagecoach Mary, the first Black female postal worker who became a legend of the Wild West. We also can’t forget the innovators, from scientists and environmental advocates to groundbreaking journalists. Join us as we celebrate the women in history who have risen to the occasion and exceeded the expectations that were placed on them.
