PRIME Scholars 20231

We are very excited to announce our new cohort of PRIME Scholars!


On Aug. 26, 1920, the 19th amendment was signed to give women the right to vote. While this allowed women’s voice to be heard across the nation, it still denied women of color, many who led the suffragette movement, access to vote. It was not until the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965 that gave all women the right to vote. Alabama never voted, rejected ratification on Sept. 22, 1919, and finally ratified on Sept. 8, 1953. We honor this day due to the work of Representative Bella Abzug (D-NY) who successfully created a bill to celebrate Women’s Equality Day on August 26 every year. 

I have a background in the study of culture and music called ethnomusicology; this was my educational refuge to maintain sanity among all the pre-med chemistry and biology courses. For this month, I invite you to my personally curated Spotify playlist that, while certainly not fully comprehensive, celebrates the history of women’s equality and feminist anthems in America from 1800s-1970s.
