Trailblazing Women Episode 13: Ashley Nell Tipton

Ashley Nell Tipton made a splash on the catwalk in 2015, as the winner of the fashion industry's premiere competition Project Runway. It was the first time, plus-size fashions had been in the spotlight and Ashley's been making waves ever since. First with her successful clothing and accessories lines sold by major retailers and more recently, with her candid revelations about her own struggles with body image, toxic relationships and depression.


Ashley's latest project is a YouTube show called "Love You" designed for the millions of young women, who thanks to social media, feel they're never quite "good enough."

Re-membering the Chicana Activist Narrative

 Acknowledge the women who dared to assert their place within the Chicano movement of the 1960s. As women. As activists. As Chicanas. 



The opportunities that called women towards California went beyond the gold men were mining for.

Get to know women of the Gold Rush Era.
