We will kick off the event with a keynote address on April 2, 2020 and offer concurrent panels and a range of activities with our community partners through April 4, 2020.

Snapshot 20/20 will foster international and interdisciplinary scholarship and conversations focused on the social, economic, and political status of women and girls from 1920 to 2020.

Highlights of the symposium will include:

Meredith’s theatre program, under the direction of Professor Cathy Rodgers, is creating a devised work on woman suffrage which will be performed at both Meredith College and the N.C. Museum of History during the symposium. 

Associate Professor of Sociology Amie Hess and her students will share the 2019 edition of Meredith College's report on the Status of Girls in North Carolina

Access A Companion Guide prepared by Carlyle Campbell Library at Meredith College. This guide has been produced to accompany Snapshot 20/20. The intention is to provide a selection of resources available through the Meredith library and on the Internet that can inform the Meredith community about women's suffrage: books, videos, digital collections, and primary sources.
