March Editorial Stock Videos — Women Making History


Every month, we dive into our archives for editorial stock videos and content—finding top-quality, timely inspiration for your marketing calendars, news, or documentary projects. But this March, we’re going all in on one significant topic. The US, UK, and Australia observe Women’s Month in March, and International Women’s Day is celebrated worldwide on the 8th. We’re thrilled to contribute to the conversation and present unique content featuring some of the most notable women in history!

Here we’ll explore the groundbreaking stories that were built on March milestones, including Hellen Keller, Barbie, the Girl Scouts, Zaha Hadid, and Lady Gaga—plus a bonus reel you’ll only find in this blog post.

Women Making History

Helen Keller Editorial Stock Videos

Helen Keller meets Anne Sullivan

March 3, 1887: Twenty-year-old teacher Anne Sullivan visits her new student for the first time—the intelligent, strong-willed Helen Keller. Then six years old, Keller grew to thrive under Sullivan’s ‘touch’ technique of writing words on her palm. She is remembered today for her writing and activism as a deaf and blind woman, and this powerful partnership helped change perceptions of the disabled forever. Our curated Helen Keller video collection features Oval Office meetings, Helen’s speeches, official ceremonies, and more.

Barbie Editorial footage

Barbie’s Debut

March 9, 1959: Barbie first captured hearts at the American Toy Fair. The tip-toeing, teetering toy was a hit as the first mass-produced children’s doll with adult features. She helped girls imagine their future, and girls helped parents pay up as Mattel broadcast commercials directly to kids (the first toy company to do so). Witness Barbie’s evolution path from prototype to the dazzlingly diverse personas she represents today in this curated Barbie collection.

Timely Tip: Barbie’s about to get jaws dropping all over again with a movie featuring Margot Robbie, opening July—watch the trailer above.

Girl Scouts Editorial Stock Videos

Girl Scouts Begin

March 12, 1912: A group of 18 girls called themselves Girl Guides, united by the belief that they could do anything. Thus, in Savannah, Georgia, a movement began that swept across America and branched into China, Syria, and Mexico. The organization has since supported others during World Wars and the Great Depression, promoted racial equality, and pioneered STEM. Explore a curated collection of Girl Scout clips showing their remarkable legacy—all of which began when women had not yet secured the right to vote.

Zaha Hadid leaves a legacy

Zaha Hadid leaves a legacy

Marvel at radical deconstructivist designs of Dame Zaha Hadid (October 31, 1950—March 31, 2016). As the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the London Design Museum’s Design of the Year in 2014, and to design an American museum, she has undeniably smashed glass ceilings in the male-dominated architecture industry. Explore the futuristic Heydar Aliyev Center and more in this curated collection.

Lady Gaga’s Birthday

On March 28, 1986 a star was born in NYC. From that day on, Stefani Germanotta has wowed the entire world with unabashed theatrical performances.
