WOMEN’S HISTORY

Jocelyn Riley of Madison, Wisconsin, has been producing videos celebrating women’s history since 1986.  “My approach is to let women tell their own stories in their own words and, in the case of contemporary women, in their own voices,” Riley says.  “I don’t use narrators, pundits, or commentators to tell the audience what to think about what they’re hearing and seeing.  The audience is free to connect their own lives with those of the women in these videos.”
