(WATCH) Women Who Changed History in 2020
While it was one of the most challenging years in a century, 2020 was also a year of great achievement for women.
Despite a pandemic, social unrest, and political fire, these women managed to rewrite history with their great accomplishments — in politics and sports.
To honor Women’s History Month, here are women who changed the course of history in 2020.
This post is part of a month-long March CircleAround series, tied to Women's History Month — the first since the global pandemic that has disproportionately impacted women around the world — in which we asked writers to explore the topic of women's history in America, from the past to very much the present.
