Too often women have been overlooked simply because they are women. This has been and continues to be outrageously unfair and it is time to do everything to redress the balance.

it's so important nowadays that our young girls and women have positive female role models and ideals to aspire to. Women's role in public life and the arts has been almost completely overlooked in the history books so let's help to redress that imbalance.

I'm signing because representation matters. The fact is we have plenty of great minds and thinkers who have been overshadowed by those with the privilege to be recognized, and now is the time to shine the light on our forgotten history.
