R.E.S.P.E.C.T. the Dress: Clothing and Activism in U.S. Women’s History

Avenir Museum Gallery, CO
Address: 216 E Lake St, Fort Collins, CO 80524, USA

From the event organizer:
How did clothing shape perceptions of women’s rights activists in the U.S. before and after the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, which legally allowed women the right to vote on a national level? From bloomers to bustles, purses to pantsuits, see how women’s fashion choices were used by the individual herself and others to define gender roles, as the year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of this moment in the long history of women’s rights.
