How Long Have Women Fought for Liberty? A History of Louisiana Women's Political Activism

Louisiana Research Collection, Tulane University

This exhibit highlighted notable New Orleans women activists and their struggle to obtain the right to vote, with a special emphasis on how our city’s social stratification and educational institutions shaped the local suffrage movement. Photographs and documents showed the work of Congresswoman Lindy Boggs, activist Hilda Phelps Hammond, artist Ethel Hutson, sculptor Angela Gregory, and many others, as well as the work of the YWCA, the Independent Women’s Organization, the Christian Women’s Exchange, the Louisiana Women’s Committee, and the National Council of Jewish Women.
