Maya Penn Makes History, Creates Animation & Narration for Opening to First Digital Report Presented to Congress- The American Museum of Women's History

Summer of 2016 I finished a project I was asked to work on by the amazing Pat Mitchell (Organizer of the official TEDWomen events) and Wendy Pangburn (member of the Congressional Commission of the American Museum of Women's History). I did the animation and narration for the opening of a report that was presented to Congress to get a Women's History Museum built in Washington. It was part of the first ever digital report presented to Congress. I attended the presentation at the Capital last month. Above is the video.
