Women's History Month Exhibit at Ball State University Libraries: Mapping the Women of the United States Congress

The GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) in Bracken Library is marking Women's History Month with a special map exhibit.  The map shown above (click to enlarge) details the history of some of the pioneering women of the United States Congress, including Jeannette Rankin of Montana and Shirley Chisholm of New York.

The map is also available from the University Libraries' Cardinal Scholar here: and may be used in classrooms or for other exhibits or presentations.  Previous map exhibits created by the GRMC celebrating Women's History Month can also be accessed in the Cardinal Scholar repository.
