Leading Ladies:

100 Years of Marching for the Future

Leading Ladies is an ongoing project intended to commemorate the plethora of amazing women of the past and present who have laid the foundations of our Civil Liberties! All Leading Lady paper dolls will be created in batches and are available for download to create in your home!


Please view the LL: 100 Years of Marching Shop to add the Leading Lady of your choice to your cart. Once you check out you will receive your PDF download(s) by email. 

Along with the pattern template for your Leading Lady, you will also receive a material list, directions and a few additional FREE pages with hyperlinks containing information on your chosen Leading Lady. Collect them all! 

What would Zitkala-Ša and Harriet Tubman write on their modern day Women's March and BLM posters? Perhaps Inez Milholland Boissevain would carry a rainbow flag to represent the LGBTQ community in Pride events! Imagine the possibilities that await! Print these over and over. Share them, and pass them around. Make them or gift them. You choose! Please make sure that you learn about these women and all that they've done for you, for me, for all of us!

Keep an eye on this site, as I will be adding new Leading Ladies frequently! Who is your inspiring SHE-RO? Cheers to these Leading Ladies! May we be them! May we raise them! May we march with them! 

All available Leading Lady patterns are available on the LL: 100 Years of Marching Shop page.

"I loved making paper dolls as a kid! There are so many women we haven't learned enough about, and I think it's a great time to utilize creativity to reinforce knowledge about how so many women have impacted the Civil Liberties we enjoy today."
