This December, take a step back into the Texas that your mothers and grandmothers knew, and discover how their contributions helped forge the Texas that you live in today. The story of Texas wouldn't be complete without the many histories of the determined women who stepped out and stepped up to fight for rights, improve public services, and help create the state that we know today. Re-encounter inspirational and pioneering Texas women such as Barbara Jordan, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Clara Driscoll, and Juanita Craft ... but then discover the impact of countless other women and women's groups in the fields of business, education, civil rights, healthcare, government, the arts, and the preservation of both natural and historic landmarks. Women Shaping Texas in the 20th Century is guest-curated by Dr. Paula Marks, a Professor of American Studies at St. Edward's University and prominent author on women's history. It is the first major exhibition in 30 years to tell the story of Texas women's critical impact in forging our state's development.
