Women’s Empowerment Symposium (moderating panel)
September 22, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$40 – $50
On September 22, 2018, Portsmouth Historical Society hosts the 2nd Gertrude Fiske Symposium: Women’s Empowerment Symposium II — A Strong Legacy Continued: The Women’s Movement from Gertrude Fiske to Today. This Symposium is designed to build upon some of the social themes explored in our 2018 exhibition, Gertrude Fiske: American Master, and create a community conversation, reflecting on the Women’s Movement from First Wave to the present. In this symposium we have gathered a group of phenomenal women who have fought for their own rights and subsequently the rights of women everywhere. It is our goal to learn from them, engage with them, and ultimately be inspired by them to contribute to the advancement of the freedom and rights of all people. Admission is $40 for Discover Portsmouth/Portsmouth Historical Society members; $50 for non-members. Feminist Oasis founder Crystal Paradis will be moderating this symposium.
