"Where are the Women Now?"

It's been a century since women in the US have had the right to vote. How far have they come? How much further have they to go?

Please join us for a panel discussion on the current status of women in the professions of business, law and media. Led by Lynette Marshall, President and CEO of the UI Center for Advancement, featuring a panel of University of Iowa professors Beth Livingstone, Tippie College of Business, Meenakshi G. (Gigi) Durham Gender, Women's and Sexuality Studies, and Bessie Dutton Murray Professor of Law Adrien Katherine Wing.

This event is part of a year of educational programming in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of suffrage in the US, and the Hard Won, Not Done exhibit at the Old Capitol Museum, 2nd Fl. Rotunda.
