The Bread and Roses Virtual Exhibit
The exhibit began as an exercise in the virtual classroom for The Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at The Ohio State University. At that time, the exhibit concentrated on working conditions and gender relations surrounding the famous 1912 strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
With the support of a generous grant from the Linden Endowment for the Arts, the exhibit has been greatly expanded to include other topics of the early 1900′s. Although not yet complete, these sections deal with the development of the suffrage and temperance movements, violence against women, and problems of class, race and immigration.
