Scope and Contents

The Woman’s March Collection contains realia and ephemera donated by members of Florida Atlantic University and the wider community who were affiliated with the 2017 Women’s March/ Women’s March on Washington. The primary focus of the 2017 Women’s March, held on January 21, 2017, was to promote legislative action for human rights; including women’s rights, LGBT rights, the natural environment, immigration reform, racial equality and freedom of religion. The March was also a dynamic protest against the election and inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump. Collection items include buttons, t-shirts, placards, ‘pussy hats’, and various items associated with the March and sister marches that took place concurrently, but particular to those held in Florida.
