The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more. With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.
Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around Back Bay, Beacon Hill & South End that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I knew that I was an artist… even at a very young age. I lit up in art class, sketched on the walls of my house, played around with fabric, and was thrilled when I received blank paper. Read more>>
