Women's Voices exhibit on display at Clinton Center
The Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock is currently hosting “Women’s Voices, Women’s Votes, Women’s Rights.” The multimedia exhibit, which traces the history of women’s rights and equality up to the present time, will be on display until April 30, 2023.
Eighteen quilts were created specifically for the exhibit. Historic artifacts are also on display including documents from the campaign for suffrage, the Arkansas General Assembly resolution ratifying the 19th Amendment and other items that relate to women's rights. Among the milestone historic events that are highlighted are the adoption of the the 19th Amendment, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and more.
The exhibit was originally scheduled to open in September 2020 to pay homage to the centennial of the 19th Amendment. However it was delayed due to the pandemic. Below is a quick peek at some of the quilts and artifacts that are on display. An app can be downloaded at the Clinton Foundation website that gives detailed information about all of the quilts and artifacts.
