The women’s march was rescheduled last month due to the weather, and today, February 2, the march was back on.
After the march, the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History, 118 W Johnson Ave, presented ‘Nevertheless She Persisted: Honoring Women’s Struggles’.
Two speakers discussed both their successes and struggles as women today.
One of the speakers, Margarita Solorzano, said it is vital to listen and share people’s stories.
“It is important for people to listen because we do not share the same background, Solorzano said. “The stories can differ but sometimes there are misunderstandings about who we are, what we are doing, where we come from, and what the intentions are for a person to relocate,” Solorzano said.
The presentation supports the exhibit ‘First Person Plural: An Oral History of Arkansas Women.”
The history exhibit is on view through February 9.
