In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, writer Mayumi Tsutakawa presents five “woman warriors” in the arts and journalism from the past century whose stories inspire.
Meet the pioneering photographer Imogen Cunningham, Black American jazz musician Ruby Bishop, Chinese American artist Priscilla Chong Jue, Leftist journalist Anna Louise Strong, and Native American linguist Vi Hilbert. Drawing on her own experience as an activist and writer, she explores how these women inspired others and changed our state and our society.
