Save the date for the Art Department’s Monthly Meeting on Tuesday, March 10, from 6:30 – 9:00pm. Dr. Anna K. Danziger Halperin will be presenting an overview of the New York Historical Society's exhibit, “Women March.” For as long as there has been a United States, women have organized to shape the nation’s politics and secure their rights as citizens. Their collective action has taken many forms, from abolitionist petitions to industry-wide garment strikes to massive marches for an Equal Rights Amendment. Women March celebrates the centennial of the 19th Amendment—which granted women the right to vote in 1920—as it explores the efforts of a wide range of women to expand American democracy in the centuries before and after the suffrage victory. This informative presentation will be accompanied by a light dinner. Following this evening event, the Art Department will host a docent led tour of the exhibit in New York city at a date to be determined.
