In September of 2017, Sandra Sider invited Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry to participate in a quilt exhibition called "Deeds Not Words": The Power of Persistence, Celebrating 100 Years of Women's Suffrage, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (August 18, 1920) granting American women the right to vote. Caryl did some reading and spent a great deal of time looking at images about the women's suffrage movement. "First Ladies," Caryl's quilt, is the result of that research.
The quilt contains the names of 162 women who accomplished important firsts in our country in the last 100 years.
