Sherrill Redmon’s career

Her first marriage

Sherrill Redmon, a former housewife, worked at the Archives and Records Center while raising her family.

After divorce:

McConnell might have divorced his wife had he tried to get reelected. Sherrill, who was a doctoral student in American history after their divorce, moved from Kentucky to Massachusetts.

She was a feminist activist.

Following her split from Mitch she joined Smith College as a feminist scholar. Her first job was at Sophia Smith Collection of Women’s History Archives. Within a short time, she was elevated to the position of director. In March 2012, she retired.

To increase cultural and racial diversity, she worked for Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. Gloria Steinem, a prominent feminist journalist, also helped her with an oral history project called Voices of Feminism.

The New Yorker claims that Gloria Steinem stated once that Sherill Remon had never spoken about Mitch McConnell. Steinem claimed that McConnell held once different political views. She said, “I cannot imagine how painful it must have been to marry and give up with a democratic Jekyll and then watch him turn into a corrupt, autoritarian Hyde.”

She holds a PhD.

Retirement and legacy:

Sherrill redmon, the Sophia Smith Collection’s Director, was relieved of her duties on August 31, 2012. Her legacy was a transformation of an organization. Staff was thinking about her legacy while they were sending off on the last day. It was hard to remember the Alumnae gym that she had joined in fall 1993.

The Collection Sherill, which was founded in 1993, was large and wealthy. But it was also heavily focused on the lives, and achievements of white women. These elite women were largely from the Northeastern United States.

The SSC staff had tried to fix this imbalance. However, Sherrill felt that an extra effort was needed to raise the holdings. Voices of Feminism was launched by the SSC with Joyce Follet as Collection Development Coordinator, and Gloria Steinem receiving financial support from the Ford Foundation. The ambitious documentation strategy is intended to enable scholars to fill the gaps in historical records.

The group searched for collections that would document underrepresented and important voices. They included 60 women who were anti-racism, labor and peace activists, feminist rights advocates and grass root organizers of antiviolence.

The Voices Project asked these women to send in their personal documents and records. Voices helped doubters see the value of their work and encouraged them to write papers.

These collections are available to African American and Native American women as well as Latino, Asian Pacific Islander and other women of colour and their advocacy groups. These documents are strong evidence of the fact that women of color worked hard for gender equality before 1963. The women were part of the Second Wave of Feminism and criticised its lack of representation of their concerns. Later, they incorporated certain practices into their own feminist movements.

Sherrill was also capable of taking advantage of many amazing, but sometimes frightening, opportunities that presented themselves along the way. This was the case with the purchase of the incredible, large records of YWCA U.S.A.

Sherrill discovered 292 brand-new collections and nearly 6000 feet worth of materials. Sherill also found grants and donated materials that were research-ready.
