One Half of the People: Advancing Equality for Women
April 6 - May 25
This traveling exhibit organized by the National Archives and Records Administration highlights the long women’s rights movement. When our Constitution was written, it was silent on women. Excluded from most of the rights and privileges of citizenship women operated in limited and rigid roles while enslaved women were excluded from all. Yet women have actively participated as citizens—organizing, marching, petitioning—since the founding of our country.
