200 Years Of Women's Firsts

With the launch of our 200th MAKER, basketball champion Lisa Leslie, MAKERS is celebrating! While we do our best to tell as many women's stories as we possibly can, there are so many incredible moments that happened before there was even a video camera to record them.

As we celebrate 200 MAKERS, we also shine a spotlight on 200 years of women's firsts. We've created a photo gallery of groundbreaking women ahead of their time who did something nobody ever thought they'd be able to strictly because of their gender.

From the first female police officer to the first female to run for president, take a look at the last 200 years of women's firsts.

And here is an interactive timeline of the 200 years of women's firsts in PDF form to share!
