This event has ended.

Women March chronicles 200 years of women’s activism in the United States, organizing to shape the nation’s politics and secure their rights as citizens. Their collective action has taken many forms, from abolitionist petitions to industry-wide garment strikes to massive marches for an Equal Rights Amendment. Women March celebrates the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment—which granted women the right to vote in 1920—as it explores the efforts of a wide range of women to expand American democracy in the centuries before and after the suffrage victory. On view in the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery in the Center for Women’s History, this immersive, interactive exhibition features imagery and video footage of women’s collective action over time, drawing visitors into a visceral engagement with the struggles that have endured into the 21st century.

The event will feature remarks by Louise Mirrer, president and CEO of the New-York Historical Society, and an exhibition tour of Women March led by curator Valerie Paley, senior vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women’s History.
