Opening Presentation 2010
"Voices of Feminism"
In Celebration of Women's History Month this performance will reflect on writings
by women that speak to issues of concern for all. These pieces still have the power
to inspire us to action - whether that be social, economical, and/or political. This
event was organized by PhD Fine Art Doctoral candidate Jeanne Haggard.

"The history of all times, and of today especially, teaches that...women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves." - Louise Otto, (Luise Otto-Peters), German feminist, 1849
