Amanda McFillen, Assistant Director of Museum Programs
The Historic New Orleans Collection
Since the founding of New Orleans, women have played an active role in shaping the city. The approaching Tricentennial in 2018 provides an ideal opportunity for reflecting on women who, either collectively or as individuals, have had a positive impact on the city’s character. Amanda will share stories curated for The Historic New Orleans Collections’ 2016 exhibition called: Voices of Progress: Twenty Women Who Changed New Orleans.
Selected for their dedication to charitable causes, civic mindedness and tenacious activism, the featured women come from many different backgrounds but share a common thread in their devotion to community and service to others. Their contributions range from the nineteenth-century campaign for child welfare, through the early twentieth-century suffrage movement, to the mid-twentieth-century fight for civil rights and equality.
Please RSVP your attendance by Wednesday, September 27. If you are inviting a guest, please include your guest’s name and e-mail when you RSVP.
