Southern Association for Women Historians Conference will be held in Lexington, Kentucky, June 9 – June 12, 2022. This year’s theme is inspired by the connections between the past and present work of southern women to protest various forms of injustice and affect political and social change in myriad ways. Recent women’s activism to protest unjust policies in the policing and justice systems and southern women’s efforts to expand access to voting has underscored women’s roles in challenging and changing southern politics and society over time. We hope this conference will inspire a conversation about the many ways southern women have fought for individual and collective rights and have worked to reform various areas of southern society.
The conference will include a panel presentation by Marsha Weinstein, Killian O’Donnell and Alex Colvin, NVWT State Coordinators in Kentucky, Florida and Alabama, respectively.
