Women’s History Month 2021

Each day during Women’s History Month, our Lord Cultural Resources team celebrated a woman who has made the world a better place through culture. We received such a wonderful response to our posts (65.2k views in total) that we decided to create a poster so that all of us can continue to be inspired by these cultural leaders.

Thank you for all that you do to make the world a better place through culture. We hope that this poster will continue to inspire you in the days and years ahead.
