The Center for the Study of Women’s History’s initiatives comprise:

  • Exhibitions and installations, including a rotating introductory display in the entrance gallery of the Luce Center; “Women’s Voices,” a digital interactive consideration of women’s words and actions; and rotating exhibitions in the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery;
  • A multimedia film, “New York Women in a New Light,” which will transport visitors to the turbulent years of the Progressive Era (ca. 1890-1920) leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution giving women the right to vote;

  • Scholarly programming, including three fellowships in Women’s History; a yearly conference; public programs in the 420-seat Robert H. Smith Auditorium; and presentations from scholars and public intellectuals in a smaller, salon-like setting within the fourth-floor screening room or contemplative “skylight” space;
  • Education programs, including the development of curricula and lesson plans at the K-12 levels, both onsite and online as well as in the New-York Historical’s partner schools;
  • A new, all-glass Tiffany Gallery displaying New-York Historical’s exceptional Tiffany lamp collection together with the remarkable narrative of the designer Clara Driscoll and her team of “Tiffany Girls.” Anchoring the new spaces, the Tiffany Gallery offers both a literal and figurative bridge between New-York Historical’s museum collections and New York and American women’s history.
