Arkansas Bar Association hosts 19th Amendment Traveling Exhibit

The Arkansas Bar Association will host the award-winning traveling exhibit, “100 Years After the 19th Amendment: Their Legacy, and Our Future,” during its Mid-Year Meeting February 6-7, 2020, at the Holiday Inn Airport, in Little Rock where Arkansas Supreme Court candidates Barbara Womack Webb and Judge Morgan “Chip” Welch will address attendees during Thursday’s reception.

The exhibit, which celebrates the centennial of the 19th Amendment, will be on display from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on February 6 and from 8:00 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. on February 7. The six-banner free-standing exhibit on loan from the American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress features historic photos and artifacts, details the story of the battle for ratification and outlines the challenges that remain.

The centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment gives state and local bar associations, lawyers, judges and other legal professionals, educators and civic organizations the opportunity to celebrate 100 years of women’s Constitutional right to vote, to educate the public about the 19th Amendment and the battle for women’s suffrage, and to promote law that ensures women’s full and equal exercise of their right to vote and to participate in our democracy. More information can be found at this website: In addition to being on display at the Mid-Year meeting, this exhibit will spend time at each of the state’s law schools while it is in Arkansas. Sponsors of the exhibit include the Arkansas Bar Foundation, Brian Rosenthal, and the association’s Young Lawyers, Civil Rights and Labor & Employment Law Sections.

During the two-day meeting, attorneys attend continuing legal education seminars, listen to local and national speakers and network with lawyers from across the state. For a complete agenda of the two-day conference, please go to
