“I would have girls regard themselves not as adjectives, but as nouns.” – Elizabeth Cady Stanton from her 1880 lecture, Our Girls
The second post in our series honoring Women’s History Month, this week we explore the works and lives of female artists who, through various mediums, conveyed, not only the realities of their own lives but the collective experiences and histories of all people.
