The Justice Bell Replica will start a one-year residency at the College, in honor of Women’s History Month and in collaboration with the Justice Bell Foundation. The Justice Bell was created to raise awareness of women’s suffrage.
The replica, now on display at the Marple Learning Commons, was created to spread awareness of the original bell’s important history and to remind us that there is still work to be done for women’s rights.
In 1915, Chester County activist Katharine Wentworth Ruschenberger came up with the idea to make a replica of the Liberty Bell. The words Establish Justice were engraved on the bell and its clapper was chained to its side, not to be rung until women were silenced no more. Although the original bell was damaged, a replica has been made.
