We have a new post on the SHGAPE Blog by Dr. Gloria-Yvonne Williams entitled "Writing a Woman's Life, A Personal Journey."

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped make this series a reality. It was such a pleasure to hear about all the ways that Perry's work continues to live on, and is a wonderful reminder of how good research helps connect us to people across time and place.
