In Sisterhood Multimedia Exhibit

In Sisterhood Multimedia Exhibit

Our In Sisterhood multimedia exhibit highlights the work of local feminists to gain equal rights for women and girls in our region and beyond. It includes a portrait gallery of sixteen influential leaders of the women’s movement during the latter part of the 20th century, a 15-minute video based on excerpts from their oral histories, period photos and memorabilia from private collections. Featured activists include Ann Begler, Jeanne Clark, Alma Speed Fox, Barbara Hafer, Eleanor Smeal, and a dozen other leading feminists in southwest Pennsylvania. The exhibit has been reviewed by the Pittsburgh City Paper and the Tribune-Review.
