“Women were not viewed as an integral part of the historical record. The vast majority remained silent and invisible, their history subsumed under general descriptions of men’s lives.”
Judith P. Zinsser, History and Feminism: A Glass Half Full
Celebrating 10 historic women who impacted Cincinnati
10 ___ Women celebrates a “first class” of 10 historic women who made an impact on Cincinnati. A few names will be familiar to some, but most are women who are not a part of our collective memories...but should be! The “___” is meant to be a placeholder for an apt descriptor that will distinguish and unite this first class. These women are creative, persistent, subversive, and plucky. Complicated, certainly...and definitely kick-ass.
