    Opening Reception for Ohio Women Vote

    November 6, 2019 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm

    Opening Reception for Ohio Women Vote

    Ohio Women Vote: 100 Years of Change opens with a public reception on Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the College’s Bishop Anthony M. Pilla Student Learning Center. Ursuline graduate and former U.S. Rep. Mary Rose Oakar will welcome guests and introduce the exhibition, speaking at 6:30 p.m.

    The reception is free and open to the public. No RSVP required.

    Ohio Women Vote comprises 12 banners of text and images that examine and celebrate the path taken by Ohio women to achieve the right to vote 100 years ago. Adding context to the panels are garments from the College’s Historic Costume Study Collection – dating from the Civil War era to the 1980s.

    The banners were developed by the Ohio History Connection and were made possible with generous support by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    The exhibition will remain on view in the Pilla Center and the Ralph M. Besse Library from Nov. 6 through Nov. 30, 2019. Visitors should expect to spend at least 30 minutes walking across campus and taking in all of the banners. They are viewable from 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
