UNLADYLIKE2020 presents the rich history of 26 American women, of very diverse professional and historical experiences, geographical, racial-ethnic, and class backgrounds, sexual orientation and gender identities. The series will include: the first woman to found a hospital on a Native American reservation, serve in the U.S. Congress, become a bank president, earn an international pilot’s license, climb the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, sing opera at Carnegie Hall, and direct a feature-length movie, among others.
Set to launch in 2020, the series will be released digitally on a weekly basis from March 1, the start of Women’s History Month, to August 26, 2020, to commemorate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. Designed to appeal to youth, history enthusiasts, biography buffs, and those interested in women’s issues and women’s stories, UNLADYLIKE2020 will be accompanied by a vibrant social media campaign, educational curriculum in schools and universities, and community screenings and engagement events across the United States.
