Enjoy Student Portraits and Stories



Welcome to Women Leading the Way, a groundbreaking community and storytelling project that challenges high school students to examine the right to vote by answering the question: "Who was the first woman in your family to vote?"

We invite you to explore the portraits, essays and posters created by the students in their journey to rediscover the lessons of the women’s movement and connect their family stories to history.
