Duke Economics Students Present 100 Years of American Women’s Suffrage

August 13, 2020 – May 30, 2021

What do today’s economics students from the course “Women in the Economy” have to say about the centenary of American women’s suffrage? Students in the course were tasked with going beyond simple tools of “supply and demand” to examine original, archival materials from one hundred years ago and to curate an exhibit on the complexities and strategies involved in the suffrage movement.

The Duke community can reserve a spot to view this exhibition in the Chappell Family Gallery!

This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
