Clio Driving Tour

Did you miss out on our NE Ohio Valiant Visionaries of the Vote Driving Tour?

Don't worry - Our driving tour has gone digital!

The driving tour was digitized and expanded on Clio at https://www.theclio.com/tour/1621.

This tour takes you to the historic sites and museums across northeast Ohio that either played an integral role in the Women's Suffrage Movement, by hosting individuals or events related to the movement, or contains artifacts and memorabilia that tell the story of the meetings and events pertaining to women's suffrage rights. Many of the leading suffragists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were native or local to the region, and often obtained an education from Oberlin College or Lake Erie College's predecessor institution, Lake Erie Female Seminary.

Our unique outdoor displays will still be viewable at some of the original tour sites.


Fashioning Women's Rights.mp4

Dr. Einav Rabinovitch-Fox is Visiting Assistant Professor at Case Western Reserve University in the Department of History. She teaches courses in American culture and history, fashion, consumer culture and politics, and women’s and gender studies. Einav's research examines the connections between culture, politics, and modernity, and she is particularly interested in the ways in which visual and material culture has shaped and reflected class, gender, and racial identities. In using fashion as a lens of analysis, her research broadens the meanings of feminist politics in the first half of the twentieth century, beyond struggles for suffrage pointing to the cultural aspects of the movement.
