Making Herstory with Amy Richards
From Marie Curie and Ada Lovelace, to Anita Hill and Chloe Kim, lawmaking, troublemaking and changemaking female trailblazers have carried the feminist movement’s flame and inspired legions of women.
Third Wave Feminist and author Amy Richards is among those bringing the struggle to a new generation. Join her as she celebrates remarkable women past, present and future in her new young adult compendium, We Are Makers: Real Women and Girls Shaping Our World.
