9/1/2022-11/30/2022 West Orange Women: Making History, Part One

Dorothy Kannon, Artist

The place of women in history, in many instances, has been forgotten or even overwritten. We all learn about the Nineteenth Amendment or the temperance movement in history class, but we rarely stop to appreciate how women have contributed to the everyday struggles and victories that contribute to the larger story. During all of our recorded history, events shaped the lives of men and women alike: consequently, history is women’s history. Though the sexes were affected and compromised in different ways and lived with diverse cultural expectations, the histories of men and women are equal sides of the same equation.

The recorded history of West Orange County spans barely 175 years, and women have played a large part in its development and cultural nourishment from the very beginning; they were instrumental in growing and nurturing the region we live in.

The exhibit features a wide variety of accomplished women from all areas of life.
