SF’s HERstory Festival: 100+ Events
Join and find out what motivated these bold women – and the rights they won for us all.
Since the early days of statehood, women in California have been at the forefront of the fight for civil rights. There will have a look at the lives of Charlotte Brown, who fought the color bar on San Francisco street cars in 1863, Selina Solomons who organized shop girls and laundresses to win women’s suffrage, Alice Piper, a 15-year-old Paiute who challenged the segregation of Native American children in Big Pine public schools – and other courageous women.
