About the Series
Join notable historians, curators, and leaders for a series of talks exploring varying aspects of the social movements of the early 20th Century and their relevance today. Talks will explore Women's Suffrage, activism and protest, racial inequity, and the consequences and legacy of Woodrow Wilson’s presidency. This program is part of the Wilson House's new interpretation focused on African American history, women's history and Wilson's international impact.

The series is part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Campaign for Where Women Made History. The National Trust and its supporters are making a significant, multi-year commitment to elevate the stories of women and their contributions as leaders, innovators, and ground breakers throughout the course of American history. The Woodrow Wilson House is a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a privately funded, non-profit corporation, helping people protect, enhance and enjoy the places that matter to them.
