In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating trailblazing women who advocate for equal rights and power our democracy.  

These include Byllye Y. Avery, America Ferrera, Jane Fonda, Coretta Scott King, and Winona LaDuke. 

Anya Dillard is a 19-year-old human rights and social justice activist, social entrepreneur, model, content creator, and aspiring filmmaker. Anya is also the founder of The Next Gen Come Up, a grassroots organization that encourages the youth to fight for social change through art and content creation. 

Join us in tracking the anticipated buzzwords for 2023's State of the Union speech from President Biden. 

Naelyn Pike is a 23-year-old Chiricahua Apache. As a lifelong fighter, she continues to follow in her grandfather’s — the Apache Stronghold's founder — footsteps in protecting Apache's holy and sacred sites and Indigenous rights. 

At the age of 13, Pike was one of the youngest people to ever testify before Congress when she spoke out against mining at Oak Flat, an Apache sacred site. Today, she continues to fight for environmental sustainability and Indigenous rights at the local, state, and national levels, battling corporations and political leaders through Indigenous spirituality. She firmly believes that the youth today give us hope for a better world for future generations. 

Most of us know or have heard of the Latino trailblazers like Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and Sylva Rivera – but we sometimes forget to highlight the youth activists who are currently fighting for a better future. In this blog, we highlight one such leader, climate change activist and co-founder of Zero Hour, Jamie Sarai Margolin.

April is Arab American Heritage Month! We’re highlighting Arab American women who've helped shaped American democracy.  

Over the past year, LWV has joined countless nonprofits in spreading knowledge and civic tools through the wildly popular video app, TikTok. We’ve compiled a few favorites.

The Native women of Haudenosaunee played a vital role in the women’s suffrage movement. Their way of living — equal participation in their government and societal roles — heavily influenced the movement’s early stages. 

Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15) is a time to recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of Hispanic and Latina Americans. This month, I want to highlight four trailblazers who’ve fought for the rights of women and paved the way for the next generation of civil rights activists.
