Jill Krementz Photo Journal: A Celebration of Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month and today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day — hence a portfolio of portraits culled from my archives. 

These women, portrayed alphabetically (hailing from all over the world) have garnered five Nobel Laureates, countless Pulitzers and honors galore.  It goes without saying that there are many others who might have been included.

In the event that you aren’t familiar with everyone who IS here, I hope you will take the time to become familiar with her work.  

I’m happy to see that so many of the writers and artists are unveiling new works this month.

Among recently published books  you can read Anne Lamott’s Dusk, Night, Dawn, Diane von Furstenberg’s Own It — “The Secret to Life, and Joan Didion’s collection of essays, Let Me Tell You What I Mean.

Niki de Saint Phalle’s first United States retrospective opens this week at MoMA PS1.

Amy Sherald’s solo exhibition, The Great American Fact, opens on March 11th, 2021 at Hauser & Wirth’s Downtown Arts District complex in Los Angeles.

Dolly Parton is singing the praises of getting the Covid vaccine to the tune of “Jolene.” 

Happy March!
