Join us throughout the academic year for virtual events celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment!

Meredith College is pleased to announce Snapshot 20/20, a symposium to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

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 Symposium Events:

  • Wednesday, August 26 and Online | Meredith College students and alumnae share research on women's lives and experiences. Click here to watch the full program on YouTube.
  • More Online Events
  • Through September 11 on Campus | The Department of History, Political Science and International Studies in conjunction with the Carlyle Campbell Library are hosting a new popup exhibition from the National Archives, Rightfully Hers, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of the ratification of the 19th amendment, women’s voting rights before and after the 19th, and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today. This exhibit runs through September 11th and is located in the entrance alcove of the Cate Center and the Trending Reading section of the Carlyle Campbell Library.

Spring 2021 - Dates TBA
