Girl Power!

Step inside the lives and stories of a variety of strong and colorful women who’ve left their mark on Washington, the United States and even the world.  Suffragettes fighting for a woman’s right to vote, first ladies, artists, community activists and countless others have influenced culture, politics and the social fabric of America’s capital city.  During field trips on Friday and Saturday afternoon, you’ll visit some of their homes, monuments, museum exhibits and art works (a public transportation pass is included in the cost of tuition so you can get around Washington, DC with your teacher).  Throughout the course you’ll hear their stories, some of which you may know while others will surprise and amuse you.
