In honor of Jackie Wallace, this “History Show” illuminates lesser known trailblazing women in various significant roles in history. Women have always contributed to our society in impactful ways, but often their efforts are undervalued and unrevealed.

Women have faced and continue to face intersecting forms of discrimination throughout American history. This initiative celebrates women who have fought discrimination at various levels and forms. Women have always contributed to our society in impactful ways, but often their efforts are undervalued and unrevealed. This “History Show” illuminates lesser known trailblazing women in various significant roles in history.
