This event focuses on two pieces of sculpture created to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment (which granted US women the Constitutional Right to Vote). Adelaide Johnson's "Portrait Monument to the Suffrage Pioneers" (unveiled in the Rotunda of the US Capitol in 1921) as well as Edith Ogden Heidel's "The Thinking Woman" (1922) are used as focal points to unearth some of the important stories that portray "Votes for Women" as an all encompassing human rights movement to which thinking is essential. Facilitated by Dr. JoEllen DeLucia and Dr. Hope Elizabeth May, this talk should interest those who are curious about the connections amongst art, history, philosophy, law, gender equality, human rights, and peace.
