According to Molly Murphy MacGregor, Executive Director and Co-founder of the National Women’s History Project, as recently as the 1970’s, women’s history was virtually an unknown topic in the general public’ consciousness. The Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (CA) Commission on the Status of Women initiated a “Women’s History Week” celebration for 1978. The week March 8th, International Women’s Day, was chosen as the focal point of the observance. The local Women’s History Week activities met with enthusiastic response.  Over one-hundred women participated by doing special presentations in classrooms throughout the country and an annual “Real Woman” Essay Contest drew hundreds of entries. 

 

In 1979, Molly Murphy MacGregor was invited to participate in The Women’s History Institute at Sarah Lawrence College, which was chaired by noted historian, Gerda Lerner and attended by the national leaders of organizations for women and girls. They  initiated similar celebrations within their own organizations, communities, and school districts, as Sonoma County had. In addition, they agreed to support an effort to secure a “National Women’s History Week.

 

In February 1980, President Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8th 1980 as National Women’s History Week. In the same year, Representative Barbara Mikulski, who at the time was in the House of Representatives, and Senator Orrin Hatch co-sponsored a Congressional Resolution for National Women’s History Week 1981. This co-sponsorship demonstrated the wide-ranging political support for recognizing, honoring, and celebrating the achievements of American women.

 

As word spread rapidly across the nation, departments of education encouraged celebrations of National Women’s History Week as an effective means to achieving equity goals within classrooms. Within a few years, thousands of schools and communities were celebrating National Women’s History Week, supported and encouraged by resolutions from governors, city councils, school boards, and the U.S. Congress. Each year, the dates of National Women’s History Week, (the week of March 8th) changed and every year a new lobbying effort was needed.   In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.

 

President Jimmy Carter’s Message to the Nation designated March 2-8, 1980 as National Women’s History Week.  “From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.

 

 
As Dr. Gerda Lerner has noted, “Women’s History is Women’s Right.  It is an essential and indispensable heritage from which we can draw pride, comfort, courage, and long-range vision… I urge libraries, schools, and community organizations to focus their observances on the leaders who struggled for equality – – Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, and Alice Paul. Understanding the true history of our country will help us to comprehend the need for full equality under the law for all our people. This goal can be achieved by ratifying the 27th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states that “Equality of Rights under the Law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”

Glass Creation by Rob Stern

About Rob Stern:

Born in Miami, Rob was reared in Atlanta where his mother taught art and his father worked in the movie industry  and dabbled in photography. Rob attended Northside High School for the Performing Arts, in Atlanta, where he was a member of an elite touring group, singing dancing, and acting.  While active in many traditional sports, he also enjoyed skateboarding, surfing and rock climbing.  All of these factors combined with the inventive and adventurous spirit he inherited from his grandparents, would be important to his future career as a glass artist.

Glass installation by Rob Stern

Rob attended San Francisco State University where he studied art and discovered glass making. He worked as an apprentice at John Lewis Glass, an industrial casting facility in Oakland for five years.  He traveled to Europe touring glass factories for a semester and then returned to begin his study at the Pilchuck Glass School, renowned worldwide for its glass programs.  Rob went on to study, apprentice and assist numerous artists/masters at Pilchuck and other schools.

Glass Creation by Rob Stern

In 1992, after working as a teaching assistant for Czech master, Petr Novotny, Rob was invited to work in the Ajeto Glass Factory in the Czech Republic.  It was the start of a long term working relationship, as he lived and worked there for a number of years.  He continues to work closely with Petr both in Ajeto and doing demonstrations and conducting workshops throughout the world. From 1997-2003 Rob taught glassmaking at the University of Miami, FL and earned his MFA.  Rob now co-teaches with many artists/master at schools worldwide and frequently travels abroad to make his work. He has been invited to work as a master craftsman in both the US and Europe. In 2003, he established Rob Stern Art Glass Inc. in Miami , where he now works with his team on many commissions and personal sculptures.

Glass Creation by Rob Stern

“I consider myself to be very fortunate to have traveled, studied and lived in many places where glass is made by masters.  I have experienced many cultures, techniques, and the people who I have met have greatly influenced me.  I draw my inspiration from this, from music and from mostly everything I see in nature.  Working as a glass artist has enabled me to view the world as fluid, reflective, and full of light.  I strive to express emotion in my work and my other primary goal is the share the gift of glass with others”.
