UK Women: Leaders in Time --The Modern Struggle

The exhibit UK Women: Leaders in Time was created to be displayed at the Sarah Bennett Holmes Award Luncheon in the spring of 2017.  The exhibit highlights notable UK alumna, faculty, and employees who displayed remarkable strength and leadership throughout the 20th century.  The remarkable women highlighted here represent a snapshot of the strength and veractiy UK women are capable of - particularly during times of progress and change.

Two questions tie together the central theme of this exhibit:  "What is Real Change?" And, "When Does Real Change Occur?" This exhibit, The Modern Struggle, looks specifically at the later years of the 20th century and finds that change does not happen quickly but rather comes in fits and bursts. The march towards equality and the progress women have made today would not have been possible without the tenacity and courage of the women themselves of the University of Kentucky.
