Description

“A Will of Their Own: 
Judith Murray and Women of Achievement in the Early Republic” showcases the important achievements of women during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. At the center of the exhibition is an oil painting of Judith Sargent Murray by John Singleton Copley (c. 1769), loaned by the Terra Foundation for American Art (TFAA). During this session, you’ll be introduced to Murray and seven other remarkable women highlighted in the exhibition. Learn about the early days of this nation and efforts to gain gender equality in America. We’ll discuss women’s contributions in relation to the women’s rights movements that came after, from the late nineteenth century to today.

This Online Conference is free and open to the public; registration is required to participate.
