The HerStory Sock Club was born out of a desire to learn more about women who have made a difference, the unsung heroines. In 2021, HerStory is all about showcasing women who've devoted their lives to making the world a better place, paving the way for the next generation of world-betterers. We're quite excited about the list of fabulous Hers being highlighted this year, and can’t wait to tell their story in color!

September honors Senator Tammy Duckworth.  Like many of our HerStory recipients, Senator Duckworth was the first of many things: the first first female double amputee from the Iraq war; the first Thai American woman elected to Congress; the first person born in Thailand elected to Congress; the first woman with a disability elected to Congress; the first female double amputee in the Senate; and the first senator to give birth while in office. Her strength and commitment are an inspiration to us all, and our Veteran Affairs colorway, dyed to look like the camouflaged uniform she wore while in the service, pays homage to the armed forces, for which she continues to fight. Because she was the first in all of these ways, the path is clearer for others to make their own way.
