Houston Women: Agitating, Educating, Advocating

HHA’s 7th Houston History Conference

As part of the Tales of Houston Women collaboration, HHA will present its 7th Houston History Conference, a one-day presentation of panels and roundtable discussions entitled “Houston Women: Agitating, Educating, Advocating.” The full day of programming will include panel discussions by women who are not only experts in the history of Houston’s women and their roles as agitators, educators, and advocates, but who have lived the history and can reflect on their own experiences. Conference goers will engage in direct dialog with the panels as we look at how women can continue to lead the city now and into the future. The conference will also include a one-day pop-up museum free to the public and a vendor area where area organizations can promote their programming.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities; The Summerlee Foundation; Betty Trapp Chapman; the Center for Public History at the University of Houston; the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston; and Houston History Alliance.

HHA Mission

This proposed programming initiative greatly furthers the mission of the Houston History Alliance, which is to serve as a connection point and catalyst between the general public and Houston’s many history-centric organizations. This collaborative project and our one-day presentation of academic programming will further our mission to leverage the city’s history to inspire civic pride and investment in Houston’s communities and its history organizations.

Conference-goers will know beyond a doubt that Houston’s women deserve to be celebrated and known.
