As Women’s History Month approaches — March has been designated as such in the U.S. since 1987 — you can bring a piece of that history home, with an iconic photograph from the LIFE collection, now on sale for a limited time in the TIME Shop.
In addition to the already available collection of LIFE classics, six photographs of history-making women are newly available for purchase. And, taking a look at these six images, it’s clear just how many aspects of world events have been changed by women like these: Thomas D. McAvoy’s image of singer Marian Anderson in 1939 captures a concert considered a curtain-raiser for the civil rights movement, and Yale Joel’s 1965 photograph of LIFE contributor Gloria Steinem catches the writer right on the cusp of becoming a feminist icon. Allan Grant’s picture of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn at the 1956 Oscars showcases the best in show business on their industry’s biggest night, while Alfred Eisenstaedt’s 1953 Marilyn Monroe summons a star in an intimate, off-the-clock moment. In 1943, Peter Stackpole caught an unnamed female pilot while on assignment for a LIFE cover story about the “Girl Pilots” serving in World War II, and in that same year photographer Margaret Bourke-White captured herself in action with a self-portrait in front of the Flying Fortress bomber in which she became the first woman to fly with a U.S. combat crew over enemy soil.
