About this event


She Says: Women, Words, and Power


Lauren Keim: Everyday Magic

It has been a historic year for women. Not only did the country elect the first woman Vice President, the Commonwealth of Virginia voted to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, becoming the 38th state to do so, thereby removing an important barrier to the inclusion of the ERA in the U.S. Constitution. On the other hand, we saw a significant retreat in the advancement of women, due to the COVID-19 induced recession. Over the course of the past year, women have experienced higher unemployment rates than men. This was due in part to the closing of schools and day care centers, which disproportionately affected working mothers.

Virginia MOCA organized the Summer of Women suite of exhibitions in response to these advances and setbacks. Together, She Says: Women, Words, and Power; Amplify and Lauren Keim: Everyday Magic provide much needed platforms for the exploration of the rich and complex lives of women.

The Summer of Women is generously supported by the PRA Group with additional support from Arleen Cohen, Susan and Andy Cohen in honor of their mothers Irene Fritsch and Lolly Cohen, Jodi and Jay Klebanoff, Southern Bank, and Kaufman & Canoles, P.C.

Free admission generously underwritten by the Goode Family Foundation.
