ONLINE EXHIBIT—“100 Years of the Women’s Vote” honors the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment, highlighting historical and contemporary successes and struggles as they relate to the enfranchisement of women and marginalized groups. In the spirit of the “Humanities for All,” 100 Years of the Women’s Vote seeks to promote understanding and empathy in order to cultivate a thriving democracy by highlighting historical and contemporary successes and struggles as they relate to the enfranchisement of women and marginalized groups. The exhibit touches upon issues of gender and the political participation of women, as well as the intersections of race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation on voting rights. In doing so, 100 Years of the Women’s Vote will provide an historical context and contemporary perspective in the lead up to the 2020 US presidential election.
The online exhibit can be accessed at: https://scalar.usc.edu/works/100-years-of-the-womens-vote/index, and the physical exhibit will be on display at the Gerth Archives and Special Collection on the 5th Floor of Library South through 2021.
