Yesterday we held our 3rd annual de Pizan Honors!  The event went really well and was a blast!  A special thanks goes out to those of you who attended.  We’re still in the de Pizan mood here at the Museum, so this week’s Throwback Thursday post is all about our honorees.  Below you can find the list of this year’s honorees and the awards they were given, as well as some of our favorite clips that show off their work!
