The theme of this year’s Women’s History Month display will be a “brief and sketchy” economic history of women in the United States during the 20th century. Four display cases will cover four eras:

  1. Progressivism and labor reform, 1900-1918
  2. Women’s suffrage, Equal Rights Amendment, 1920-1929
  3. Rosie the Riveter becomes June Cleaver, post World War II-1960
  4. “Women’s Lib” movement and Equal Rights Amendment, Part II, 1960s-present

Dr. Britain Scott of the St. Thomas Psychology Department will create some miniature vignettes to represent these themes, but she also is looking for photographs, clothing, buttons, posters, etc., to flesh out the cases. If you have anything that you would be willing to loan, please contact her via e-mail, bascott@stthomas.edu, describing your artifacts. She has secure storage space where materials will be collected over the next three weeks.

Also, helpers are needed to arrange the display in the cases. If you’re willing, contact Patricia Alexander at pmalexander@stthomas.edu.
