Women of Our Time

Marian Anderson
A fabulous exhibition: Women of Our Time – photographs of some of twentieth-century America’s famous and influential women. Even without big pictures, the site is very interesting covering those influential women of many different areas: photographers, writers, actresses, poets, athletes, designers, civil rights activists, singers, reformers, journalists, dancers and the aviator Amelia Earhart. There are brif biographies with the portraits, an audio explanation from the exhibition’s curator and very “documentary” about the evolution of photographic portrait.
Some other women portrayed in this exhibition: Rosa Parks, Althea Gibson, Jeannette Rankin, Josephine Baker, Helen Keller, Dorothy Parker, Sylvia Plath, Ella Fitzgerald and Margaret Sanger.
