In 1991 a group of staff and students created an exhibit in Langson Library on cross-cultural perspectives on women and work to celebrate Women’s History Month. In subsequent years, the installation of the Women’s History Month exhibit was continued by students enrolled in Women’s Studies 160: Research Methods and Sources in Women’s Studies.

Each year students from the course were divided in two groups and asked to organize their research and exhibit around a central theme related to women’s history. In 1992 the students surveyed the growth and development of Women’s Studies as a discipline; in 1993 they challenged associations inherent in the phrase “the year of the woman”; in 1994 the focus was on global feminism; and in 1995 the exhibit explored feminism in the past, present, and future.

Included below are photographs from librarian and Women’s Studies instructor Joan Ariel’s teaching files taken during the installation of the exhibits in 1993, 1994, and 1995:
