Tenacious Women exhibit_illustration by Jessica Tanny

The exhibit features the lives and work of four women from the late 19th century through the end of the 20th century, who were dedicated to democratic change and expanding the rights and freedoms of women and all Americans. From traditional methods of lobbying legislators and holding elected office to grassroots public demonstrations and teach-ins, these women exemplified American civic responsibility.  

Runs through Friday, September 7, 2012, and will be on view in the Schlesinger Library’s first floor exhibit area during regular library hours: Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. More
