Hoosier women crushing barriers

UNDATED – Hoosier women have been crushing barriers, breaking records, and blazing trails throughout history. In honor of International Women’s Day, we want to recognize some of them.

Check out this video to learn about a few of these inspiring Hoosier women:

“These women made our state – and the world – a better place, and paved the way for the inspiring Hoosier women we know today,” said Governor Eric Holcomb. The innovation, bravery, leadership, and pioneering spirit of these women embody what it means to be a Hoosier Hero. We want to teach folks across Indiana about these historic Hoosier women, but we can’t do it alone.”

Governor Holcomb is asking residents to share this interesting tidbit of Hoosier history on social media.
