Explore art that tells the tale of women's struggle for equality

Women won the right to vote in the United States 100 years ago—and to celebrate this landmark anniversary, we'll join Nancy Green, Johnson Art Museum's Gale and Ira Drukier Curator of European and American Art, to look at this struggle through the lens of women creating art.

In the 19th century, quilting and embroidery offered some autonomy to women when few occupations were open to them. As the century progressed, women were trained to teach art in public schools. Ultimately, women artists helped shape the cultural dialogue that led to women's suffrage.

On visits to the Howland Stone Store Museum, the Rare Manuscript Collections at Cornell, and the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, we'll see how American women influenced art and advanced themselves through art during the last two centuries.
