Ep. 40 - N&S Celebrates: Women’s History Month

We are excited for this week's episode because it's an opportunity to celebrate an underrepresented group of creators - Women! Female representation in the arts has existed for centuries, but as a society, we've largely ignored it. In honor of National Women's History Month (in the US), we're giving them their centuries-overdue attention! 

While there's no way we can cover every female contributor or contribution to the arts, we hope that this episode can whet your appetite for further exploration of the many women who have created works of beauty over the years.
