About

Women Who Dared is a virtual exhibit of notable women throughout world history. The website developed out of an annual exhibit held on the campus of Delta College in University Center, Michigan. Every March, the Women's History Month Committee decorates the halls of main campus with life-size cutouts of notable women. College students and community members have benefited greatly from viewing these women and their biographies. Through the website, I hope to encourage women to break through barriers and work towards a more equitable society.

It has been said that if you can't dream it, you can't be it. Hopefully, this site will give plenty of inspiration to dream big!
