This project was born in the fall of 2018, when the Supreme Court Kavanaugh hearings forced me to revisit a 30-year-old #metoo trauma from my own life.
This work is about applauding women’s courage to endure and, ultimately, prevail – despite it all. It’s a testament to our strength. I began the series with obvious heroes: Hillary Clinton, Anita Hill, Christine Blasey Ford, Emma Gonzalez, Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou, and Tina Turner, but I also wanted to include the everyday women. We who have risen victorious from these experiences without the luxury of celebrity or wealth.
