In honor of Women's History Month, we're shouting out to all the ladies who helped craft the creative world we know and love today. They inspired, reshaped, and broke the rules of art and for that, we're forever grateful.
This worldly woman drew inspiration from her roots— she grew up in Tanzania, studied in Sierra Leone, and settled in Oxford—to create a popular, strategic building game that would later become a quintessential favorite.
May Morris was fearless in more ways than one. In addition to making artistic history in the world of embroidery, she also cofounded the Women's Guild of Arts giving a much-needed—and well-deserved—voice to female creators.
Otherwise known as "Lady Edison", this female creator drew her first original blueprints at the age of nine. Today, we have her to thank for over 110 inventions including the first bobbinless sewing machine.
