Introducing: Season 2

Over the past year, we’ve featured 250+ women, some familiar and some not so much. In spite of the far-ranging history, we were repeatedly asked, “Don’t you think you’re going to run out of women?” That very question underlines how much work is left to do. We are back for season 2 to tell the stories of women you may not know about but definitely should. Each month has a different theme: from Leading Ladies to Musicians to Hometown Heroes, tune in every week day for your daily dose of history.
