Beyond Supply and Demand: Duke Economics Students Present 100 Years of American Women's Suffrage

Fri, 2021-04-16 15:30
Fri, Apr 16, 2021
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Last August we celebrated the centenary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment and the nearly eight decades of activism that led to it. In commemoration of this historic moment in American history, students from Duke's Fall 2019 course "Women in the Economy" examined original, archival material from Rubenstein Library to explore the complexities and strategies of the women't suffrage movement. This research culminated in a major exhibit that tells the story of the fight for the Nineteenth Amendment, on display now in the Jerry and Bruce Chappell Family Gallery in the Duke University Libraries. Join librarians, along with the faculty member and students who facilitated this project, as they explore the work of this course and offer an on-camera tour of the exhibit. Free and open to the public. Please RSVP to receive a Zoom link, which will be sent the day before the event.
