International Federation of Professional Business Women - 0 views

  •  
    This the offical website for the group and explains the mission and the values of the group as a whole. It also offers history on the creation of the group and what the group is currently involved with today. I found it extremely intresting that a Kentucky women born before women had the right to vote could make such a huge impact not only on a state level or a nation wide level, but on an international level, like Lena Phillips was able to accomplish in her lifetime.

The University of Louisville's Women's Center - 0 views

  •  
    I really liked what the University of Louisville was doing to try to impower the lives of the women students and the women living in Jefferson County. The goal of the Women's Center is to promote equality between men and women, increase the self reliance of women and to display and demonstrate everything that women do for society. The goal is to change the mindset of both men and women who are living in a different era and to show that women are capable of accomplishing anything that a man is capable of accomplishing.

    Thought this picture might be useful in the project on Female Orphan School to examine issues of class and race in the models of Kentucky womanhood projected from the school administrators for advertising purposes and/or fundraising. The role of the railroad and coal industries in the school could be examined also. Notes from KDL site: Woodford County, Kentucky. Kentucky Female Orphan School: Many girls at the Kentucky Female Orphan School, Midway, Ky. are daughters of Southern Railway men. In the background are several original buildings of the school which opened in 1849. Date: 1900 - 1954.

Making Our Voices Heard - 1999 - Genie Potter, KCW - 1 views

  •  
    The opening section of "The Future Well-Being of Women in Kentucky" published in 1999 as a response to the "Report on the Status of Women in Kentucky" - I enjoyed very much the many meetings and conversations with a diverse group of women activists from all over Kentucky that were involved in the making of this report. (NOTE: to progress through this e-book, it works best if you simply change the chapter number in the URL because the hyperlinks among pages are not always consistent.)
