Development of a series of short documentary films and related digital components about the lives and accomplishments of women during the Progressive Era.

Unladylike is a multimedia series featuring little-known American women from the turn of the 20th century, set to launch in 2020 for the centennial of women's suffrage. Through thirty-one animated documentary shorts for each day of Women's History Month, we profile female trailblazers from the Progressive Era (1890s-1920s) who broke barriers in then-male-dominated professions such as science, business, aviation, journalism, medicine, and the arts. We bring these stories, and the societal conditions these women faced, to life through archive, original artwork and animation, voice-over, and interviews with historians, scholars, and accomplished women of today. Through digital and social media distribution, along with community and educational outreach nationwide, audiences will gain a nuanced, inclusive understanding of U.S. history and women’s contributions during the Progressive Era, and explore how this history affects American lives today.
