This short story collection highlights the lives of seven women across time and place who have been overlooked by history despite their impacts and accomplishments. The genre of biographical fiction provides a first person lens into these women’s lives which allows each story to adopt a unique style, voice, and form. This project increases awareness not only about these particular women, but also about the issues they faced, such as racism, gender inequality, and issues of intersectionality, which continue to affect women to this day.
