With the aid of Google’s Field Trip app, the SPARK Movement is honoring history’s forgotten and overlooked women by marking locations on the map that bear significant connections to their lives. These highlights on the app were launched during the first week of March, and they include over 100 women in various fields. Among the women recognized are Nellie Bly, Xie Bingxin, and Gloria Anzaldúa.
