By Michelle Durham
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The National Constitution Center is celebrating Women’s History Month in March with a unique look at the achievements, leadership and courage of the nation’s women, past and present.
Museum programs coordinator Jenna Winterle describes the exhibit features in and among their always on display “We the People” presentation.
“We like to tell the story of how women have strived to earn more rights in the constitution and in American history; the passage of the 19th amendment,” says Winterle.
Listen to the full interview of Jenna Winterle:
On display is Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s robe and other key items, but Winterle says this presentation is more than just exhibits. There are programs you can watch and participate in as well.
“You can play our giant game board. You are sort of our game piece and answer questions about women’s history,” Winterle explains.
The schedule of Women’s History month programming includes Philadelphia Girl Power, First Ladies Show and Women in Prohibition show.
