Constitution Day – – – for Feminists?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook


September 17  is “Constitution and Citizenship Day,” commemorating the signing of the Constitution in 1787. 

The Congressional resolution,  codified at 36 U.S.C. § 106, also includes a  requirement of an “educational program” at all educational institutions that receive federal funds.

Did your institution “comply”?   Did you participate?   Was the focus on the original signers?  Did any program include feminist perspectives?  A discussion of citizenship given current controversies?   Reference to Amendments, such as the Fourteenth or Nineteenth?

Soliciting comments, including any programs in which you participated, on the conlawprof blog here.
