UNLADYLIKE2020 is a multimedia series, which features extraordinary, unsung women from the early years of feminism, launching in 2020, in honor of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. Through 31 animated documentary shorts for the 31 days of Women's History Month, the series profiles female trailblazers from the turn of the 20th century who broke barriers in then-male-dominated professions such as social activism, politics, science, business, aviation, journalism, medicine, exploration, and the arts. With breathtaking original art and animation, rare archival imagery, and interviews with contemporary women influenced by these historical women, the series presents history in a bold, new way.
