NFW Digital Experience - Suffrage: The Style of a ...

Presented by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and Tennessee State Museum at ONLINE

Join the Tennessee State Museum, in collaboration with Nashville Fashion Week’s 10th Anniversary, for a special online presentation and virtual tour of the women’s suffrage exhibition, Ratified! Tennessee Women and the Right to Vote. This FREE event will include a discussion with Amanda Smith, Tennessee State Museum curator of Fashion and Textiles.

Throughout history, clothing and fashion were always, and continue to be, a powerful form of expression. What we wear can define us, inspire us, and say to others that we are individuals empowered with confidence. Learn more about the statement the suffragists were making with the clothing and colors they wore as they marched in parades for women’s voting rights. The Museum’s exhibition, Ratified! Tennessee Women and the Right to Vote, uses artifacts, documents, large-scale graphics, videos, and interactive elements to share the stories of the Tennesseans who came to have decisive roles in American women’s struggle to gain voting rights.

Suffrage: The Style of a Social Movement is part of the NFW Learning Lab series. This is one of four educational opportunities that have been announced to provide a platform to engage, learn and connect experientially within the community. Please make plans early to attend at least one of these FREE special digital events and consider making a DONATION to the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to help support our Nashville fashion community.
