About The Event
Using historical photographs, primary documents, and hand-drawn illustrations, Tessa Hulls takes participants into the lives of intrepid female adventurers who lived through the turn of the 20th century—before the right to vote or the right to own property. In sharing these stories and her own, Hulls illuminates the power of history in today’s world and demonstrates why female role models are vital in affecting social change. Presented in partnership with the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau.
