She Did It
From the Jessica Esch: Fill in the Blanks exhibition
"The things that I did in the way of social work and social projects, which seem to have been successful, were items I took up because at the moment they moved me very deeply. They seemed right. Nobody else was there to do do it and I did it. Once embarked upon a project, I wanted to win." -Frances Perkins
