Now that everyone is back from Spring Break, take a trip to the 6th floor of the FHG Library to see the new exhibit by Special Collections. In celebration of National Women’s History Month, this exhibit displays rare and valuable materials on women’s history and honors the prominent women and female student population of WCU. The color scheme of the exhibit represents both the American and British suffrage movements. The British suffragettes used purple, white and green as their colors; while the American suffragettes used purple, white, and gold.
Some special highlights of the exhibit include bios on numerous WCU employees, such as Anne Goshen, Ruby Jones, and WCU’s first female president Dr. Madeline Adler; materials from the Women’s Center , Women’s Institute, and Women’s Government; and some historical documents from the Women’s Movement. If you have any questions on the exhibit or want to view other materials on women’s history, please come visit special collections on the 6th floor of FHG Library.
