The Women’s Studies program at IUP is proud to cosponsor “In Sisterhood,” a feminist exhibition on the women’s movement in Pittsburgh/Western Pennsylvania in the University Museum, second floor of Sutton Hall, from February 2 through March 16, 2013. The opening reception will take place from 6:00–8:30 p.m. Saturday, February 2, in the University Museum.

“In Sisterhood” is an oral history and multimedia project documenting the history of the women’s movement in Pittsburgh. The project was selected as one of 12 regional projects to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Pittsburgh region. The multimedia exhibits include portraits of 46 leaders, period photos, and ephermera and are designed to increase awareness of this inspiring regional history.

A Six O’Clock Series panel featuring several women scholars and activists will take place on February 18 to further introduce the exhibition. The event is free and open to the public.

Thank you to our cosponsors: University Museum, President’s Commission on the Status of Women, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the departments of Political Science, English, Psychology, History, Philosophy, and Theater and Dance, and the African American Cultural Center at IUP.
