RISE UP! (Marsha P. Johnson and Sophie Scholl)

For the finale of Women's History Month, we bring you "Women of the Resistance". We are a little more political than usual, just to warn ya. We broadly define resistance as those standing for what is right against those who oppose them up to and including the law. 

 

First, Rebecca covers the life and death of Marsha P. Johnson, a transwoman who helped spur the gay rights movement. Rachel then depresses us all with the story of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose Movement against the Nazis. 

Special thanks to our voices of the resistance - Heather Dykes, Karen Lesman, August Roy, Abbie Lesman,  Tracy Owens, Ariana Lesman. 

 

Quotes from: Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling, Malala, Margeret Mead, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Eli Wiesel. 

 

Written and hosted by Rachel and Rebecca Hettrick. 

Produced by Rachel Hettrick.
