Woman: the female human being, as distinguished from a girl or a man.
Dictionary.com has the bare essentials definition but in 2016 a woman is more than just a female human being; she is the boss, the mother, the inventor, the gatekeeper, the creator – she is not secondary to her male counterpart, but equal.
While women across the world still face opposition and unfairness, the current road from which generations have paved looks a bit brighter. There are more stories of how women present day are disrupting the worlds they occupy and with that comes a new heightened sense for why women’s history is that much more important to capture.
That is what BrooklynButtah, in collaboration with Brown In The City, aim to celebrate this Woman’s History Month featuring every day trailblazers like Brooklyn’s own Nadia Lopez of Mott Hall Bridges Academy and celebrity hair stylist Gabrielle Corney.
Women everywhere and in various fields have a story, whether you recognize the name or not. To capture their mark on history, we have created HERstory, a visual history book featuring sit-down interviews with these very women to get the scoop on life, love, career, and the highly-sought-after balance.
Today, being a woman is to be a trailblazing multi-tasker. More women are opening businesses and taking over male dominated spaces. While matters of equality still remain an issue across the world, women are not the damsels in distress portrayed in movies of the 1950s.
Join us as we capture a group of dynamic women for HERstory, with new interviews released weekly.
