Look What She Did! was created by Julie Hébert and Jill Klein after they served on jury duty at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in downtown Los Angeles, and began to wonder who the heck is Clara Shortridge Foltz and why haven’t we heard of her?
They researched her and discovered Clara’s many accomplishments, the foremost of which is that she was the first person to envision and establish the Public Defender system in the United States. Crazy. Naturally the next thought was… imagine how many other amazing women are out there, past and present, who have done incredible things for our society but somehow are lost to history.
With Look What She Did!, Julie and Jill have set out to celebrate these unknown powerhouses by asking interesting women to talk about the women who have inspired them with their achievements, their fearlessness, their dedication to making the world better. We want to know about these women, we want to discuss them, we want to remember them.
