A Yellow Rose Project: How Far Have We Come In 100 Years?
Presented by SPE's Women's Caucus
Meg Griffiths and Frances Jakubek
August 18th 2020 marked the centennial of the 19th Amendment and a woman's right to vote. A Yellow Rose Project is a large-scale collaboration made by over 100 women all across the country who were invited to make photographic work in response, reflection, or reaction to the ratification of the 19thth Amendment. Co-Founders, collaborators and participants, Meg Griffiths and Frances Jakubek, will discuss the virtual archive, book, and exhibitions that make up the project. Griffiths and Jakubek say, "Our mission in researching the complication of this anniversary was to gain a deeper understanding of American history and culture from this moment in time. Though this movement granted rights to some women, and this achievement in itself is to be acknowledged and celebrated, the struggle did not end there. It was not until much later that all American women, regardless of race, were given the same privilege."
