NYUWomxn100 celebrates the lives, pursuits, innovations, and achievements of womxn of transgender, non-binary, and cisgender experiences. We honor womxn who have been historically overlooked in their pursuits, innovations, and accomplishments across our global communities.

2020 marks 100 years since the U.S. ratified the 19th amendment, though not all women gained access to their vote. The global legacies of women forging justice and gender equality are rich, and still in motion. NYU takes this moment to revisit our pasts as we innovate our collective futures.

NYUWomxn100 events will recognize the often unseen and unacknowledged efforts of womxn, particularly those of historically and contemporary marginalized backgrounds. Join us for year-long programming, events, and exhibits.

Thank you to everyone who registered and joined us for Park Avenue Armory's 100 Years | 100 Women Celebration of Commissions: Virtual Watch Party on August 18, 2020.

On the centennial of the 19th amendment, 100 Years | 100 Women asked a diverse group of more than 100 artists, activists, scholars, students, and community leaders to creatively respond to this milestone anniversary. Collectively, their work interrogates not only the complex legacy of women’s suffrage through their various lenses and practices, but also reflects this volatile year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, #BlackLivesMatter, and a divisive election season. The project created by NYU entitled Women Creating Nouns, Not Adjectives: Votes for Women––in partnership with the NYU Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation, NYU Tisch Department of Photography & Imaging and the NYU Institute of African American Affairs and Black Visual Culture––in conjunction with Park Armory's 100 Years | 100 Women, is now available for online viewing until December 31, 2020.
