We are pleased to introduce our Feminist Firsts Issue of Re/visionist, which celebrates women and feminists who were firsts, pioneers, visionaries, and all-around badasses. Of course there are zillions of such individuals, but we have chosen a few that excite us with the hope that you will continue the project of bringing to light these stories as inspiration to all feminists.
From millionaires to artists, social workers to fighter pilots, this issue covers a wide range of feminists who broke through barriers to achieve their full potential for the greater good. Two of our editors also traveled to Chicago to explore the second city’s women’s history–a rich tapestry, represented in this issue in three different portraits.
Feel free to leave posts about other feminist firsts that inspire you!
