To mark Brown's 250th anniversary, documents and images leading up to the 1975 Lamphere case that charged the University with sex discrimination will be on display in Pembroke Hall. In "The Lamphere Case: The Sex Discrimination Lawsuit That Changed Brown" exhibit, curators compiled extensive archival research and oral histories with key participants to show how Brown changed during a key moment in its history and the feminist activism that drove that change.
