Leading up to the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment and the opening of our "Rightfully Hers" exhibition in March 2019, a panel explores how the feminist movement has been shaped and changed by the systems, institutions, and individuals working against women’s equality. Panelists include Elaine Weiss, author of The Woman’s Hour, Marjorie J. Spruill, author of Divided We Stand, and Carol Robles-Román, Co-President and CEO of the ERA Coalition. Book signings will follow the program.

Presented in partnership with the National Woman's Party, the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial Initiative, and The ERA Coalition.
