Design Discourse: Design for Women’s Equality

Women waged a long — and ongoing — fight for equal rights. Sometimes the fight has been loud and sometimes the it’s been quiet, but it’s always been brave. Design has helped to make this movement more powerful. Its role in the fight for equal rights is what we’ll be talking about in this Design Discourse.

Join us as MODA’s Assistant Director, Lisa Babb, leads this discussion.

Among the topics to be discussed are:

  • The Salem Witch Trials

  • The first women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York

  • The fight for the vote

  • Rosie the Riveter

  • The National Council of Negro Women

  • The Daughters of Bilitis (DOB), the first lesbian organization in the United States

  • The National Organization for Women (NOW) 

  • The birth of MS Magazine

  • The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)

  • Barbara Kruger
