A special traveling exhibit commemorating the 19th Amendment is on display in the Judge Ben C. Green Law Library through Saturday, Sept. 11. The exhibit, "100 Years After the 19th Amendment: Their Legacy, and Our Future,” celebrates women’s suffrage, tells the story of the battle for ratification and notes the challenges that persist.
Sponsored by the American Bar Association and the Library of Congress, the exhibit conveys history through seven free-standing banners that feature historic photos and artifacts. It was curated by the Law Library of Congress and received a 2019 GDUSA American Graphic Design Award.
“I hope our students and the broader community take time these next few days to review the banners interpreting the 19th Amendment movement and reflect on the historical changes the Amendment has made benefitting our past, present, and future selves,” said Law Library Director Joseph Custer.
The exhibit is free to view and open to all students, faculty, staff and the community. Visit the library’s home page for hours of operation.
