As a women’s rights advocate and historian, I enjoy writing about courageous and extraordinary 20th-century women who, by timing and circumstance, became trailblazers against gender discrimination. Those who experienced and fought sexual and ethnic discrimination in the 1950s and 60s not only challenged the status quo, they ignited change in our history, society and culture. Their stories call our attention to the potential loss of the rights we we may be taking for granted today.
By spotlighting the perseverance and the boldness of these leaders, I hope to inspire today’s women and men to be diligent in defending the rights previously won through decades of dedicated work and persistence. Exploring thought-provoking stories of fights for justice and equality will remind us why we must always be vigilant. The women I write about are my heroines, and I suspect that once you read their stories, they will become yours as well.
