In the midst of the 2020 election season, the UK Women and Philanthropy Network and the UK Rosenberg College of Law invite you
to a virtual discussion about the history of women at the University of Kentucky during the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
The first women were admitted to UK in 1880. For generations, women at UK have claimed and reclaimed their right to an equitable university experience while also working on a national level to secure their right to vote. These pioneering women constructed opportunities for themselves and for those who followed.
Lecture host – Interm Dean of the Rosenberg College of Law, Mary J. Davis.
Dean Davis is a pioneer herself as she led the Rosenberg College of Law through a major renovation while also receiving one of the largest philanthropic gifts in university history.
Featured speakers – Terry L. Birdwhistell and Deirdre A. Scaggs from the UK Libraries will discuss their recent book, Our Rightful Place: A History of Women at the University of Kentucky, 1880-1945.
As always, please free free to share this invitation with women that you think may be interested in this topic or are interested in joining the UK Women & Philanthropy Network.
