"On Display: The Public Lives of 20th-Century American Women," a Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library exhibition
At the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library, a new exhibition examines the Library’s Public Policy Papers collection as it relates to 20th-century American women to show that women have, in fact, always been involved in public policy. “On Display: The Public Lives of 20th-Century American Women” demonstrates that the lines between the private and public lives of women have often blurred, with personal medical decisions becoming a matter of public debate, living rooms transformed into sites of political activism, and marriage pulling women into unpaid service.
The exhibition can be visited Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Free and open to the public
