Scajawea - Trailblazer

Sacajawea was a Lemhi Shoshone native American woman who served as a guide and interpreter for Lewis and Clark as they explored the Pacific Northwest and mapped the Louisiana Territory in the early 1800s. Sacajawea became a symbol of women's worth and independence in the early 20th century by the suffragists of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, and she was inducted into the American Women's Hall of Fame in 2003.

The quotes on the soles of my Sacajawea socks read, "Amazing the things you find when you bother to search for them" and "Sacajawea was a Lemhi Shoshone interpreter, who guided Lewis and Clark on their expedition into the American West".

Maggie Stern, an artist based in Massachusetts, designs socks ornamented with her own drawings of notable women who she feels have changed the world for the better. What began with Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become a thriving small business. About her creative journey, Maggie quotes John Lennon: "Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans!" 

Maggie's socks are both utilitarian and stylish and, well, maybe a bit political.
