Missing from HIStory!" (1993)
In 1993, members of the Women's Action Coalition researched individual
women, or "Sheros", whose stories are not typically included
in history textbooks. Twelve posters were prepared, each on one
woman, and pasted throughout the Boston area. Teachers also wrote
to request copies to post in their classrooms. Included here are
Fannie Lou Hamer, a civil rights activist, Mary Harris "Mother"
Jones, who helped to organize copper mine and cotton mill workers
against poor working conditions, and Hannah Senesh, a Jewish resistance
the Women’s Action Coalition (Boston, Mass.) records.
