Grotarian Event – Women’s Museum of California
March 13, 2018 at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm$20.00
REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT HAS CLOSED – THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED UP!
Please join the Grotarians as we tour the Women’s Museum of California located in Liberty Station. The museum is one of only three stand-alone museums of women’s history in the country. It was founded in 1983 as the Women’s History Reclamation Project. A docent will give us a tour of the permanent exhibits at the museum, as well as the current exhibit entitled, “March to Empowerment.” This exhibit explains the journey towards the American woman’s enfranchisement, spanning the late 19th century into the early 20th century. This exhibit will encourage viewers to place themselves within the legacy of a fight against the gendering of civil rights. Each section of the exhibit will provide a story arc created from materials extracted from the generous Alice Park Collection within the Museum archives, and will expound upon the struggle for fostering political discourse that validated women as public voices with a right to the vote. After the tour, we will enjoy adult beverages and heavy appetizers, while we socialize with fellow Rotarians. As highlighted in the news, the Women’s movement is ongoing and strong today. We invite all Rotarians, men and women, to join us for this event.
