"Women Empowered: Fashions From the Frontline,” is an exhibit at Cornell University chronicling the ways women have used fashion throughout history to collectively uplift themselves.
The exhibit is centered on space and place, where women have used their fashions for empowerment. This led to five sections: The government, the street, the academy, the arena and the stage. Some of the garments display a straightforward message, like the suffragist sashes or the 1199 Union paper hats, but others are more focused on a backstory.
