The 'Overlooked' Obituary Project

Since 1851, obituaries in the New York Times have been dominated by white men. Just 20 percent have been women. "Overlooked" is a New York Times initiative to write the obituaries for the women who never got them, but should have. Launched in March 2018, the women include the photographer Diane Arbus, the anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells and the novelist Charlotte Bronte, among many others. The project is ongoing.
