Fun Facts

When Katharine Meyer Graham took over The Washington Post in 1953, she said “I had very little idea of what I was supposed to be doing, so I set out to learn. What I essentially did was to put one foot in front of the other, shut my eyes, and step off the edge.” For many years, she was the only female head of a Fortune 500 corporation.

Her Story is a vivid documentation of the breadth and diversity of American women's achievements throughout U.S. history. This one-of-a-kind illustrated timeline highlights the awesome, varied, and often unrecognized contributions of American women since the 1500s.

Sometimes you wonder if it’s all worth it – family, work, life, and how to stay sane. Get this: Women throughout U.S. history have shared the same struggle! As they struggled, they fought for the right to vote, own property, and custody of their children in divorce. By sharing the stories of women who came before us, today’s woman can draw inspiration and strength from the passion, determination, and persistence of the women on whose shoulders we stand. On the March 14, 2010 “Girlfriend We Gotta Talk!” radio show guests Charlotte Waisman and Jill Tietjen, co-authors of “HER STORY: A Timeline of Women Who Changed America,” shared some of the stories from such women.
