Synopsis

As the year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women attaining the right to vote, we trace the accomplishments of women composers, poets, artists, scientists, and public figures throughout history from composers Hildegard von Bingen in the 12th century, through Clara Schumann and Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel in the 19th Century, to Nadia Boulenger in the 20th century...women who have persevered to express themselves as artists against all odds.
