UnCommon HerStories

March 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

I spent March 1, the first day of women’s history month clamoring online sites looking for women that are not usually honored. The funny thing about history is that it is a singular memory reflected and imposed on our imaginations. Memory is our defense of this imposition in the way we speak, eat, dress, cook and live our everyday lives. In an attempt to creatively imagine a more progressive herstory I want to highlight women that I have encountered whose work, passion, and expression impact history, timelessly.
