Nevertheless She Persisted: Women of Courage, Tenacity, and Strength

A tradition at the Koehnline Museum is its annual collaboration with the Women and Gender Studies program to bear witness to the many creative women sharing their unique visions in the visual, literary, and performing arts. Nevertheless She Persisted focuses on the reserves of strength and resilience women display. We see it in the courage of women in emerging grassroots movements such as #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, the National Women’s Marches, the LGBTQIA+ and international human rights movements, and the remarkable young leaders of the Parkland survivors. It rises in the determination of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Dolores Huerta, Elizabeth Warren, and countless others trying to break the glass ceiling in U.S. government and politics.
