Remember The Ladies is an organization dedicated to the teaching of American women’s history. Education possesses the transformational power to bridge gaps of experience & understanding, increases the confidence of young women, and inspires everyone to lean in.

Now, more than ever, it is important to understand and hold space for more representative histories. Because, you can’t be what you don’t see.

 By expanding the historical past, we change the present.

ek, 2019

Most of my childhood history lessons centered around the accomplishments of European men, glorifying their conquests and overlooking their faults. I can list the women I remember learning about on one hand—Marie Antoinette, Cleopatra, and Rosa Parks. I am going into my senior year of college, and I feel like I’ve finally begun to catch up with all that was never taught to me. Medical Sociology taught me about Henrietta Lacks, English and Culture taught me about Sojourner Truth, and Women’s Studies taught me about Gloria Steinem. I can genuinely say that those lessons challenged my beliefs, opened my mind to new lifestyles, and ultimately set me on the path to becoming the woman I am today. I can only imagine where I’d be if I had learned about those women back in elementary school.
