Museums and archives in the U.S. and U.K. are collecting signs, placards, photographs, and artifacts from the 2017 women’s march on Washington. The Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington DC and the New York Historical Society are among the institutions in the U.S.
February 3, 2017 marks the centennial of the College Day picket of women suffragists on the White House. The College Day picket was one of the many pickets in front of the White House organized by the National Women’s Party to demand the right to vote for women. Despite controversy and disapproval by Goucher College’s administration, thirty Goucher students enrolled in the Baltimore, Maryland institution participated in the picket.
To commemorate this anniversary, the Goucher College Library presents a public program, “A Nursery for Militant Suffragists”: The History of the Women’s Suffrage Movement at Goucher College, to be held on Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 7 p.m. in the Batza Room of the Athenaeum. The program will feature Goucher alumnae and students presenting their original research on the history of Goucher’s involvement in the women’s suffrage movement. Their talks will highlight the role of notable alumnae and faculty in the movement as well as the college’s role in the local and national campaigns for voting rights for women. Research made possible through support from Class of 1960 Rhoda M. Dorsey Archives Endowment and Brooke and Carol Peirce Undergraduate Research Endowment. Event sponsored by the Friends of the Goucher College Library.
