19th Amendment and Its Historical Impact Lecture

19th Amendment and Its Historical Impact Lecture
National Archives at Kansas City
Kansas City, MO
Monday, March 25, 2019 - 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.


On Monday, March 25 at 3:00 p.m., the National Archives in partnership with Park University, will host Dr. Kim Warren who will discuss the 19th Amendment and its Historical Impact over the last 100 years as a part of Women’s History Month. This program will take place in the McCoy Meetin’ House on the Park University Campus, 8700 NW River Park Drive, Parkville, MO. Reservations are requested by calling 816-584-6209 for this free program.

On June 4, 1919, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by Congress, then ratified on Aug. 18, 1920. The amendment, which prohibits states and the federal government from denying the right to vote on the basis of sex, will be the focus of Warren’s lecture. Warren, an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Kansas, is a scholar of gender and race in African-American and Native American studies, history of education and U.S. history. She authored a book on African-American and Native American citizenship and served as an editor of a book on the transformation of the University of Kansas between 1965 and 2015. Her other publications include examinations of Native American masculinity and athletics, separate gender spheres ideology and African-American tourism in West Africa. Warren’s second monograph, an investigation of Mary McLeod Bethune’s political strategies to advance the movements of women and African-Americans in the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, was supported by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

Feminism for the Americas: The Making of an International Human Rights Movement

Feminism for the Americas: The Making of an International Human Rights Movement
William G. McGowan Theater
Washington, DC
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.


In her book Feminism for the Americas, professor Katherine M. Marino chronicles the dawn of the global movement for feminism and women’s rights in the first decades of the 20th century. She introduces us to a cast of remarkable Pan-American women who drove a transnational movement that advocated women’s suffrage, equal pay, maternity rights, and broader self-determination. These efforts led to the enshrinement of women’s rights in the United Nations Charter and the framework for international human rights. A book signing follows the program.

Rightfully Hers, a new exhibit to mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment, will open later this year at the National Archives.

Rightfully Hers is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, AT&T, Ford Motor Company Fund, Facebook, Barbara Lee Family Foundation Fund at the Boston Foundation, Google, HISTORY ®, and Jacqueline B. Mars.

The Power of Black Women Voters

Recent elections have brought attention to both the value and disregard of the Black women's vote.

Exhibit Opens: Why Women Organize

Exhibit Opens: Why Women Organize
Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum in Austin, TX
Monday, June 10, 2019 - 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Registration
Four-Day Educator Institute

June 10-13, 2019- LBJ Presidential Library

$50 per person | Stipend + housing provided

Breakfast + lunch daily | CPE credit opportunity

Women have taken active roles in movements throughout history but are often left out of the traditional narrative. During this four-day educator institute, we will explore women's activism and involvement in various movements throughout modern United States history. And, the timing is fitting. The 99th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote, is this August.

What to Expect

Educators will hear lectures and have conversations with leading experts in the field. Topics to be covered include litigation around social movements with Vanderbilt University Professor Dr. Holly J. McCammon, and feminist social movements, the 1950s to present, with a focus on the response to white feminism by women of color with University of Texas at Austin Professor Dr. Nicole Guidotti-Hernández.

It is our hope that educators will be able to share a more inclusive story of women's roles in movements in their classrooms.

More speakers and institute details to be released soon.

How to Attend

The workshop has a maximum capacity of 40. Please fill out your online application by Friday, March 15. Application requirements include a statement, resume, and a letter of support from your supervisor. All participants will be notified of acceptance by April 1, 2019. Once accepted, there will be a $50 fee to reserve your spot.

Each attendee will receive a $250 stipend. If housing is needed, it can be provided at no charge on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.

In 1855, after her family won its freedom, seven-year-old Mary Mildred Williams joined Senator Charles Sumner in a series of sold-out lectures as evidence that slavery knew no bounds. After being photographed, Mary unexpectedly became the face of American slavery: America’s first poster child. Why? As author Jessie Morgan-Owens relates in her book, Girl in Black and White, this former slave girl looked “white.” A book signing follows the program.

Dr. Sally Roesch-Wagner, a New York Council for the Humanities Scholar, will talk about the Haudenosaunee women of New York and their equal rights society that influenced the early suffragists. Haudenosaunee women owned the land, the children, and the food and resources. Their husbands took their wives’ family names, and women voted on and removed male political representatives. Haudenosaunee women demonstrated to the suffragists that egalitarian society was possible.

Alice Paul Institute

Join us for a screening of the moving documentary Equal Means Equal! Don’t miss this powerful film that explores the history of the Equal Rights Amendment and advocates for its passage.

EQUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.” – from EqualMeansEqual.org

In a city dominated by national politics and international aid groups, Washington, DC’s women-centered nonprofits work to build, foster, and heal the communities in our region by providing services that reduce and eliminate the many barriers women continue to face to economic and social equality. By demanding that the region’s women have the basic right to dignity and safety, these unique, vital, and all-too often overlooked and undervalued nonprofits serve and uplift the women who call the nation’s capital home.
