Remember the Ladies: A Celebration of 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage is the next exhibit at the Foster and Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery at Saint Vincent College. The exhibit runs from June 24 through January 8. The gallery is on the ground floor of the Fred Rogers Center.
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment with a special exhibit that explores the long history of women’s struggle to achieve the vote in the United States. While 1848 emerges as a pivotal moment in written history with the prominent Seneca Falls Convention in New York, women struggled for access to the vote long before 1848. This exhibit explores themes of the meaning of democracy and freedom to women across class and racial lines. It will highlight the ongoing struggle for equality from the founding of the nation through the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 through colorful textiles, artifacts, and documents.
Gallery hours are from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays, Memorial Day through Labor Day; from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays from Labor Day through Memorial Day, and from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays.
