Hybrid Event - Register for Zoom

“Women Making History” is a collaborative exhibit that features sections written and curated by students in the WVU History department as well as faculty and staff from WVU Libraries. It features content from several collections that make up the West Virginia Feminist Activist Collection. WVU Professor Emerita Judith Stitzel and Jessie Wilkerson, associate professor of history in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, will deliver remarks at 6:00 pm.

Judith Stitzel is the founding director of WVU’s Center for Women’s and Gender Studies. She serves on the steering committee for the West Virginia Feminist Activist Collection and will give introductory remarks about the importance of documenting women’s history. 

Jessie Wilkerson is the Joyce and Stuart Robbins Chair in Eberly. She received a prestigious Carnegie Fellowship during 2021-2023 to explore feminism in the South and Appalachia. Part of that work is an oral history project with women miners undertaken by students in the WVU History program that will become part of the West Virginia Feminist Activist Collection. “Women Making History” is supported by funding from Wilkerson’s Carnegie fellowship.
