Women’s Suffrage Commemoration at the Parthenon
March 1, 2020 - March 31, 2021
The Parthenon and Centennial Park was the destination for the years-long struggle and debate for a woman’s right to vote. From March 2020 through March 2021 the Parthenon will celebrate this history-changing accomplishment with an exhibit spotlighting the creators of the Woman’s Building at the 1897 Centennial Exposition, including a family-friendly ‘Dress the Part’ area, and links between Athenian democracy and American voting rights. Public programming will include informal programs near Centennial Park’s Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument, a panel discussion of women’s rights from ancient Greece to modern times, and a recreation of the Suffrage walk from the Capitol to the steps of the Parthenon.
Specific event details and times to be announced.
