Exhibition On Women's Equality Opens

PHILADELPHIA – An original exhibition titled "From the Absence of Many to the Presence of All…The Unfinished Business of Women's Equality" will premiere Oct. 18, 2010, at the National Constitution Center (NCC) in Philadelphia. It chronicles the historic and ongoing struggle for gender equality in America. The exhibition will be on display in the Center’s Posterity Hall through early 2011. Admission is free with regular museum admission.

Exhibition highlights include timelines on a series of ribbons depicting the benchmark events and halting progress in the struggle for gender equality in America, a wall of portraits and stories of heroes of the women's rights movement from the 19th-21st centuries, and a mural collage of historic photographs, posters, and newspaper articles highlighting the history of women asserting their rights to equality of leadership in American society.

“The Unfinished Business of Women’s Equality” was commissioned by Drexel University College of Medicine’s Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership and made possible by the generosity of McDonald’s Corporation. The exhibition opens as the Institute launches Vision 2020, a 10-year initiative to promote women’s leadership and equality with An American Conversation about Women and Leadership on Oct. 21 and 22 at the NCC.

“This exhibition was created to inform the public about women’s history, which is often only a slim chapter in American history books,” Vision 2020 Co-Chair Lynn Yeakel said. “It asks girls and boys to consider what remains to be done to achieve equality, which is a cornerstone of our democracy.”

To add to the women’s history component of “The Unfinished Business of Women’s Equality,” an educators’ guide with curriculum for middle and high school students has been developed. The guide will be available online beginning Oct. 18.

“The National Constitution Center is a proud Vision 2020 partner,” said National Constitution Center President and CEO David Eisner. “We look forward to exciting and inspiring a new generation of active citizens who are eager to carry on the legacy of the suffragists in protecting the ‘We’ in ‘We, the People.’”

The exhibition was developed by Remer & Talbott and designed by Metcalfe Architecture & Design.
