Women of New York have been a pivotal force in shaping our culture through their actions and voices. Taking a cue from the National Women’s History Alliance theme for this year's Women's History Month, “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” this exhibition celebrates the history of New York’s great women communicators.
Each of these women broke through social norms and elevated the lives and experiences of the unseen, unknown, and unheard, forming new and profound narratives. They have chronicled the continuing struggle against sexism and racism, fought for change in the ranks of power, and have upended and expanded the meaning of literature, art-making, and critical thought.
Their legacies continue to provoke and inspire generations of women who feel the opportunity to shape humanities’ story in their grasp.
