Only 11% of the content on U.S. history textbooks is about women. Lessons in Herstory is an app that uses AR to change this, by bringing to life the forgotten stories of women. Lessons in Herstory allows students to scan an image of a male historical figure in one of America’s most popular history textbooks. The app unlocks a related story from the same period of a forgotten woman in history.
