Leslie Przybylek – Senior Curator Heinz History Center

Senior Curator at the Heinz History Center, Leslie Przybylek, spoke with WQED-FM about her work on a newly opened exhibit at the Center, A Woman’s Place: How Women Shaped Pittsburgh. This exhibit takes an interactive journey through women’s history from the 1800s to modern day. Leslie discusses the changemaker women that the exhibit highlights, including Nellie Bly, Mary Cardwell Dawson, Peggy Owens Skillen, and Sophie Masloff. She also talks about how Rosie the Riveter continues to inspire young woman today and how everyday women in Pittsburgh brought change. The exhibit runs until October 6th, and there will be more programs and events around this exhibit soon. Visit https://www.heinzhistorycenter.org/ to learn more and reserve tickets.
