Breaking the Glass Ceiling Library Exhibit
By Richard Ma, MiraCosta College
The MiraCosta library is pleased to showcase an exhibit commemorating 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The year 2020 represents the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted white American women the right to vote. Better known as women's suffrage, the amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, and ended nearly a century of protest and struggles to secure its passage.
The MCC Library Exhibit Series for Academic Year 2019-2020 shines the spotlight on the theme of women’s suffrage and equality. Join us as we kick off this exploration with an exhibit entitled “Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Notable Latinas,” highlighting achievements from Latinas who have made tremendous contributions to society--from Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to the queen of Latin pop, Gloria Estefan.
The exhibit is located on the first and second floor of the OCN Campus Library & Hub and the SAN Library & Hub and will run for all of September. A complementary website accompanies the exhibit: https://library.miracosta.edu/latinx
