This webinar took place June 24, 2021. A collaboration between Preservation Leadership Forum and the campaign for Where Women Made History. Women are EssentialPART 1: New Ways of Seeing Women in Every Historic Place Every place has a woman’s story to tell, if only we could do a better job of “seeing” their presence in those places. Even historic sites that are recognized for their associations with women’s achievement contain additional layers of information that should be carefully examined to provide a more nuanced and complete picture of personal accomplishments, gender and sexuality identity, and the forces that shaped them. From the home of an internationally acclaimed Black American civil rights activist to a small “Cent Shop” that provisioned a 19th century seaport, women were absolutely essential to the success of a wide range of social, intellectual, and economic activities. Join us to learn new ways of seeing women in every historic place. Panelists
