Athens, Ga. - The annual Women's History Month exhibit of materials from the Lucy Hargrett Draper Center and Archives for the Study of the Rights of Women in History and Law is on display at the University of Georgia Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

Photographs, books, memorabilia and artifacts document the women's movements in the U.S. and U.K. from 1840-1920, including materials from Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth and other early leaders.

The exhibit, "Forward Into Light," on view through April 5 in the gallery of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, examines the changing world of women from 1632 when the first treatise on women's legal status and rights was published in London, to the 19th and early 20th centuries, a period of major social transformation.

The Lucy Hargrett Draper Center preserves and makes available to scholars historic collections of rare materials documenting the world's movements for women's rights and the women and men who led them.
