Women Politicking Politely: Breaking Boundaries in

September 21 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Women Politicking Politely: Breaking Boundaries in the Workplace and the Home

The Matheson History Museum welcomes back Dr. Kimberly Voss to share from her book Women Politicking Politely: Advancing Feminism in the 1960s and 1970s. Dr. Voss’s presentation includes the relatively unknown stories of six important women who laid the foundation for improving women’s equality in the U.S. While they largely worked behind the scenes, they made a significant impact. In the group are two female political operatives who worked behind the scenes along with four female journalists who also worked within the government to advance women’s rights during the 1950s through the 1970s. Dr. Kimberly Voss is a full professor of journalism at the University of Central Florida

Registration is required to attend. Participants may attend in person at the museum or on Zoom. Parking is available in the museum’s parking lot and on the evenings and weekends next door at the Law Offices of Attorneys Folds & Walker and at the Alachua County Public Schools District Office.

This program accompanies Voices and Votes: Democracy in America opening at the Matheson History Museum on July 20, 2024. Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the local exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
