You are invited! The National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites is holding its Annual Meeting via Zoom on Tuesday, October 26 at 4pm EDT. This meeting is free and open to all!
Our featured speaker will be Page Harrington, a public historian specializing in 20th Century women’s history and author of Interpreting the Legacy of Women’s Suffrage at Museums and Historic Sites.
Interpreting the Legacy of Women’s Suffrage at Museums and Historic Sites (Rowman & Littlefield 2021) is an invaluable guide for public historians and practitioners who wish to share an updated historic narrative that is inclusive of the full breadth of the movement, including the pervasive bias and racism. This book acknowledges the barriers faced by history practitioners, from the difficulty in finding materials that document the political actions by women of color, to our own reluctance to broach this disparity, and then offers practical solutions and techniques for bringing about a larger shift in organizational culture.
Currently as the VP of Cultural Assets for Girl Scouts of the USA, Harrington maintains both the historic collection and corporate archives in New York City, and oversees the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace in Savannah, Georgia. Harrington is the former Executive Director of the National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument and holds two master’s degrees from the University of San Diego — one in Public History & Historic Preservation and the second in Non-Profit Management & Leadership.
It has been a big year for the NCWHS as the suffrage centennial celebrations continued and the National Votes for Women Trail was established across the country. We want to share that information and more with you in our annual meeting. Questions and discussion from attendees are encouraged.
