WXXI celebrates Women’s History Month with a series of vignettes that highlight a few of the many remarkable women in American History. Noteworthy Moments in Women’s History features Antoinette Brown, the first ordained woman minister; Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman to run for President; entrepreneur and beauty expert Martha Matilda Harper; geneticist Barbara McClintock; and JoAnn Falletta, Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic.
Written in collaboration with the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Rochester, the series of vignettes are presented by Kitty Van Bortel, President of Van Bortel Automotive Group and a well-recognized role model for businesswomen in the greater Rochester area and throughout the nation.
SBAI would like to thank WXXI and all partners who helped to make Noteworthy Moments in Women’s History a reality. We are looking forward to hearing about these noteworthy women throughout March – including our namesake, Susan B. Anthony.
