Women have persisted through many obstacles in history. In this collection, we aim to tell the stories of those women who stood out. Although they were hushed, these extraordinary women lived their life for themselves.

The girls and women in this collection of animated shorts have the smarts and curiosity to make things happen. In one short, we see that in American history, there have been women who speak out for what is right, even when they have to fight to be heard. Come celebrate these women who helped shape our country through their tenacity and persistence. In another short, explore the story of four female African American mathematicians at NASA. How did these extraordinary, ground-breaking women overcome gender and racial barriers to succeed in a highly challenging environment? Narrated by Octavia Spencer.
