On Nov. 14, the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) honored living legends at the Second de Pizan Honors Gala in the Amphitheater of the Ronald Reagan Building. Named in honor of Christine de Pizan, the first Western woman to write about women’s history in 1405, this year’s honorees were legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz; renowned poet, author and playwright Dr. Maya Angelou; former U.S. Senator and former President of the Red Cross Elizabeth Hanford Dole, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Rhodes in recognition of his promotion of women’s rights. Joan Bradley Wages, CEO and President of NWHM, hailed the honorees as leaders “who represent the best in their respective areas in today’s world.”
