University of Georgia Debuts Exhibit On Women’s Marches Held in Washington, D.C.

The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library at the University of Georgia has launched a new exhibit entitled, “Nevertheless, She Resisted: Documenting the Women’s Marches,” which focuses on women’s marches that have been held in Washington D.C.

The exhibit examines the women’s marches of 2017 and 2018 through posters, photographs, articles, and ephemera. It explores the branding of a new women’s movement, the connections it shares with historic movements for suffrage and women’s rights in the United States, and how the movement has evolved over time. The display also features signs, buttons, and other materials from counter-protesters who appeared at these demonstrations. Material from historic movements is also on display in addition to material from recent events.

“I hope this exhibit gives a sense of the broader political implications and issues that compelled people to protest, and draws connections to women’s movements of the past and their historic impact,” said exhibit curator Terri Hatfield.

“Nevertheless, She Resisted” will be on display through May 17, 2019.
