It’s been 100 years since the 19th amendment was ratified and March is Women’s History Month. This is a great time to hear: From Suffrage to the ERA: NJ Women in American Politics with Jim DelGiudice.
Please join us on March 10th from noon to 1 p.m. in the Level 2 Reading Room to hear this lecture, which examines a wide-ranging list of colorful individuals in the social context of their times. In the beginning of the twentieth century, women were outsiders to the American political scene. Today, they have moved into all aspects of public life. New Jersey pioneers–from Alice Paul to Milicent Fenwick–set the stage for the political success of today’s New Jersey women.
Jim DelGiudice, a lifelong Morris County resident, has used his eyes and voice to document the New Jersey scene for more than half his 56 years. His architectural photography for books published by Rutgers University Press twice won him the state’s Historic Preservation Award, and his plays have been produced by such venues as the Bickford Theatre and Kean University. In the millennium year, Jim was cited by both the state and county legislatures for his lifetime contribution to the arts. He is an adjunct assistant professor at County College of Morris, and also lectures frequently at Drew and Columbia Universities, as well as adult and professional groups around the metropolitan area. Most recently, he served as photo editor for A Lifetime with Shakespeare, published by McFarland & Company.
