Important Woman Leaders in American History

For August through December of 2016, I researched & wrote up a series of social media posts about important historical woman leaders in America (and related important dates) to go along with a client’s book The Secret Life of Lady Liberty: Goddess in the New World. It was a mix of my own research as well as quotes from the book or primary sources. (I also wrote/edited copy for lots of little posts—normal social media activity, but important to keep up with.)

The channel is still more or less active as I write this, but just to showcase this particular information in one place, I’ve gathered the historical posts below!

(Update: Unfortunately, Facebook’s embedding has stopped working for these posts, so here are just the links. Scroll around the page’s timeline for these and other interesting perspective on feminism in history and in the present.)
