El Paso County Historical Society converts “Women as Agents of Change” into virtual exhibit

A popular exhibit, cut short by the COVID19 pandemic is back, in virtual form, thanks to the El Paso County Historical Society.

During Women’s History Month in March, the El Paso County Historical Society celebrated by highlighting the lives of many of these “social housekeepers” in their featured exhibit “Women as Agents of Change: El Paso’s Social House Keepers, 1886-1930.”

But the exhibit was short lived, thanks to the closures and social distancing guidelines put into effect.  While disappointed, the staff at the society found a way to ‘reopen’ the exhibit.

“Unfortunately, we had to close to the public in mid-March as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Joseph Longo, curator at the El Paso County Historical Society shared. “Nevertheless, we have made our exhibit available online.”

The society also hosted a talk by Susan Goodman Novick titled “Charity Work and Civic Improvement: Jewish Women’s Activism in El Paso from 1889-1930.”

The exhibit, with scores of pictures and information was put together by Joseph Longo, Barbara Angus, Dr. Sue Stanfield, Claudia Ramirez, Melissa Hutson, Trish Long and Sarah Duenas.

The exhibit can be viewed via this link.
