Jennifer Scanlon

As part of Women’s History Month, The Huffington Post has compiled a list of “11 Women Who Did Groundbreaking Things That Men Got the Credit For.”

Among this group is Anna Arnold Hedgeman, who in 1963 organized the March on  Washington, but was “hidden, concealed, out of sight” by the men around her, according to Jennifer Scanlon, who authored the biography, Until There Is Justice: The Life of Anna Arnold Hedgeman.

Scanlon is also interim dean for academic affairs and professor of gender, sexuality, and women’s studies at Bowdoin. Read the Huffington Post article.
