‘What should schools teach about women’s history?’


Terry Keith

Los Angeles

“That the accomplishments of women are everywhere. Women’s history is American history. It’s world history. I think women’s contributions are especially underappreciated in science and math.”

Maria Kemper

Mar Vista

“They talk about behind every man is a great woman, but what about the women who are already in the front?    Women really do rule the world and men know this.”

Raymond Johnson

Los Angeles

“That there is no progress without struggle and women have always led the struggle. Fannie Lou Hammer, Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman and those are just the ones we know.”

Ashley Mays

Culver City

“History is great and all, and you can learn a lot from history, but I’d rather focus on right now. Women are doing so many incredible things right now.  … We need to own it and do as much as we can now.”
