In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage, Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum & Humanities Washington present an event remembering some of the remarkable, but often unsung, women of the Pacific Northwest. Writer Mayumi Tsutakawa discusses five "woman warriors" in the arts and journalism whose inspiring stories reach back to the early years of our region. Meet the pioneering photographer Imogen Cunningham, Black American jazz musician Ruby Bishop, Chinese American artist Priscilla Chong Jue, Leftist journalist Anna Louise Strong, and Native American linguist Vi Hilbert. Drawing on her own experience as an activist and writer, she explores how these women inspired others and changed our state and our society.
