The University Libraries, in collaboration with the Women’s Center, Collaborative Education Leadership and Innovation in the Arts (CELIA) and the New Media Incubator are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment – Women’s right to vote. We have a number of displays and digital objects available in the Dunbar Library and in CORE Scholar to honor this historic event. Each of our displays is highlighted below. Please join us to learn more about women’s suffrage and the 19th amendment.

Suffragist Quilt Displays

Mother Goose Quilt Square

The Women’s Center, in collaboration with the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network, have two quilt exhibits on display in the Dunbar Library and in the Women’s Center. The Suffragist Quilt Collection celebrates the ratification of the 19th Amendment with 19 quilts, handmade by Guild members. One of the quilts, created by Linda Morgan, a current grad student and former Women’s Studies and Laboratory Animal Resources staff member, honors suffragist Rachel Ezekiel. Ezekiel is the great-grandmother of Dr. Judith Ezekiel, a former Women’s Studies professor at Wright State. The second collection is Mother Goose Revisited. This collection includes 13 quilts which are original mother goose tales rewritten. Both quilt collections will be on a rotational display in the Women’s Center and Dunbar Library during the months of February and March.
