A big thank you to Communication faculty member Hilary Altman for acquiring the exhibit! If you have questions or want to schedule a private showing for your group or class, please do not hesitate to email her at


INSTRUCTORS: Please tell your students about this opportunity.  Feel free to offer an extra credit exercise, so that students can write about their favorite photograph, how they were touched by or felt reflected by people they saw in the photos, or perhaps questions they have about the women’s movement and how the marches play a role in continuing the women’s rights movement.
