The collection is comprised of a series of inspiring videos (by Spencer Bakalar and Diane Tsai) and stunning photographs (by Luisa Dörr) of awe-inspiring women who have dedicated their lives to paving the way for future generations of women.
An excerpt from the collection’s webpage:
‘She broke the glass ceiling.’
“What a jagged image we use for women who achieve greatly, defining accomplishment in terms of the barrier rather than the triumph. There she is up where the air is thin, where men still outnumber women, but where the altitude is awesome. Our goal with Firsts is for every woman and girl to find someone whose presence in the highest reaches of success says to her that it is safe to climb, come on up, the view is spectacular.”
