Helen Keller | January's Her-Story Series Woman

Helen Keller is an extraordinary woman, who, with the help of her teacher and friend Anne Sullivan, and her own determination, became the first deaf woman to earn a college degree. Helen Keller is one of the most well-known women in history. Her story is an incredible one, beginning when she was just 19 months old. Keller became ill and the fever took both her eyesight and her hearing. She struggled to communicate, trapped in her own mind until she met Anne Sullivan. Anne Sullivan taught Helen Keller to communicate with the world around her. At the age of 6, Sullivan taught Keller her first word, 'Water' as she ran cool water over one hand, and finger-spelled water into the other.

Helen went on to graduate Cum Laude at Radcliffe and learn to communicate in a variety of ways, including finger-spelling, typing, braille and lip touching. She wrote an autobiography The Story Of My Life which has been remade into movies and plays like The Miracle Worker. She spoke up about Women's Suffrage and become a prominent political voice during her time.

Helen Keller is the best example of what life can look like if you're determined to see it that way. To honor her, we have made a dress with a beautiful blue skirt, like the water that Helen first learned to spell.

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller
