Women’s History Month: A Humorous Look At Famous Women


Amy Simon, writer, performer of She's History

Ashley Gardner, Executive Director, Women's Museum of California


She's History

A couple of years ago, the History Channel unveiled a special series of programs called "America - the story of us". It could just as easily be called "America, the story of Him" considering how few women were featured in the programming. But, that is not unusual. Even after two generations of women's studies programs and revised textbooks, Americans still don't know much about the courageous and fascinating women who shaped this country from revolutionary times to now.

Luckily, we can all get a humorous, crash course in famous American woman this week in a one-women play called "She's History - the most dangerous women in America then and now." It's being featured by the Women's Museum of California as part of their women's history month events.
