HerStory: Amazing American Women Pioneers!

The stories of Abigail Adams' enduring letter, Harriet Tubman’s Underground Railroad, and the courageous efforts of Native American Sarah Winnemucca come to life in this enchanting program.

Herstory uses archival film, images, and stirring songs to commend the work of American women pioneers who, by overcoming enormous odds, changed the course of history. Relive the legend of Susan B. Anthony and those involved in the Women’s Suffrage Movement.

Journey through to the 1970’s, when Gloria Steinem and the other reformers, artists, educators, scientists, and revolutionaries challenged the injustices of cultural traditions and gender discrimination. Stirring musical performance and more!
