Shining a Light: Women’s Fight for the Right – until 31 December 2019

Deadline: 31 December 2019. The Muhammad Ali Center is already gearing up for our 7th annual Shining a Light Photography Contest and Exhibition.

In 1919, Congress passed the 19th amendment. In 2020 and in support of the Frazier History Museum’s initiative and the city of Louisville, the Muhammad Ali Center will host Shining a Light: Women’s Fight for the Right celebrating the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. The exhibition will focus on women’s suffrage on a global scale in hopes that it will honor the women around the world who have fought and continue to fight for the right to vote without bias, without discrimination, without violence, and without fear. It will also explore the narrative of suffrage, and reflect on women who have fought, throughout history and all over the world, for political representation and the right to participate in politics in general.

Below is the link to our online submission form. Please share with anyone you know who would be interested in participating.
