Acts of resistance can be big or small. A rebellion. A handwritten sign. A strike. A movement.
Women have held leadership roles in acts of rebellion and activism in the Southern California region for hundreds of years. Not all of these women's names are remembered today. Their stories may have been told without their voices present, the narrative of their actions shaped by an external hand.
Today, they may tell us their stories in their own words, holding our gaze, and broadcasting their voices to the world. By pushing back against systems that infringe on their ability to live fully and freely, radical women in Los Angeles continue to shape the physical landscape and the diverse cultural heart of the city.
In this exploration of the Becoming Los Angeles exhibit, join our educators as we look more closely at the stories of women led resistance, rebellion and activism from the 1700’s to today.
