The 2018 Arizona Women's History Alliance Symposium, "Arizona Women Advocating for Change", explores the topic of Arizona women advocating for change from an historical lens and features efforts currently underway to improve the lives, conditions, and opportunities for Arizona women.
The keynote address will be given by Molly Murphy MacGregor, Executive Director and Chair of the National Women's History Project. Ms. MacGregor co-founded the National Women's History Project which spearheaded the movement for what has become National Women's History Month. Ms MacGregor is a recognized expert in the field of women's history.
The panel discussions include a diversity of speakers that have advocated for change in education, law, labor, unions, and political leadership in Arizona. Scholars, public historians and writers with an avocation for women's history will discuss the challenges and issues that arise when researching and writing about women. Speakers will address early efforts at advocacy, including the ways women advocated for change before Arizona's successful 1912 legislation giving women the vote, how advocacy has changed over time and the urgency of advocacy today.
The 2018 Symposium is free and lunch will be provided (with an RSVP). Sponsors include the Arizona Archives Alliance, the ASU School for Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies, and Salt River Project.
