The Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access led us to the “Women of Our Time” gallery as we sought out other resources to continue our celebration of Women’s History Month. This gallery “highlights famous and influential American women of the twentieth century. The iconic images include studio portraits, glamorous publicity shots, press photographs, fashion photographs, advertising images, and amateur snapshots.”
The portraits were originally a part of a traveling exhibition and the website was created to serve as an accompaniment. But know the site itself serves as an amazing resource with access to impressive portraits of women who made a difference in American history. When you click on an image in the gallery that portrait is highlighted and accompanied by a brief biographical overview. So click around, explore, and enjoy!
