HOW  WE ARE MAKING

HERSTORY

The American HerStory Project will adapt and expand the stories of women throughout U.S. history into a series of videos and a collection of online exhibits. The Project is an online destination where anyone can discover and explore the untold stories of important women in our history.

American HerStory is a video and interactive media experience that reveals and elevates the lives of women who have changed America. Most are stories you’ve never heard, about women whose names you never knew. American HerStory will present them in dramatic fashion, inspiring and enlightening, and helping us understand history in a completely new way.

This project is designed to fundamentally transform the way women are perceived. The American HerStory Project provides the solid foundation that will move the revitalized women’s movement forward by forever changing the way we view women in society – past, present and future.

OUR STORY

IS HERSTORY

The American HerStory Project is the brainchild of women’s history author and advocate Jill Tietjen. An electrical engineer by training and profession, Jill is the author of eight books on women’s history, including the award-winning bestseller Her Story: A Timeline of the Women Who Changed America. Through her work and her writing, she came to understand the lack of women’s representation in history–and the picture was grim. Her life’s mission is to correct the record and finally give women their rightful place in our nation’s history, its present, and its future.
