Women Who Dare to Inspire, an interactive exhibit, is currently on view at the American Labor Museum. The exhibit was unveiled to the general public in conjunction with the Museum's International Women's Day and the Centennial of Women's Suffrage Celebration held on Sunday, March 8th, 2020.
Women Who Dare to Inspire, an interactive exhibit, invites visitors to learn about New Jersey's Alice Paul, other state's leading suffragettes, and daring women in other fields of endeavor. In addition, visitors may cast a vote in the Museum's mock Presidential Election, put on a suffragette sash, hat and shawl and take a "selfie," and add an original slogan to the Museum's #Eachforequal wall.
The Museum is a partnerof New Jersey's Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Initiative, which commemorates the passage of the Constitutional amendment that granted women across the country with the legal right to vote. While the Museum's interactive exhibit honor's women's solidarity, activism and achievements, it also acknowledges the inequities and challenges women of all backgrounds have faced and continue to confront from 1920 to the present day.
