Check out the new exhibit on the second floor of Dunbar Library on loan from the Ohio History Connection, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Ohio Women Vote: 100 Years of Change, is a traveling exhibit in celebration/commemoration of the centennial of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, and will be up through Feb. 29th. The display contains twelve standing panels featuring the stories and voices of Ohio women from varied backgrounds who participated in the early days of the suffrage movement before the Civil War through the present day. Quotes from articles, speeches, books, letters and oral history interviews allow the women to speak in their own voices to educate us on their engagement in voting and citizenship over time.
Exhibit content, and accompanying curricular material, was curated and designed by Ohio History Connection staff and the production of the exhibit panels was funded by Ohio Humanities. Wrights State’s CELIA, (Collaborative Education Leadership and Innovation in the Arts) is responsible for bringing the exhibit to campus. It will be on display through the end of February, 2020.
