[Petri Family Portrait], circa 1890s, J125, Hubert Jones Glass Plate Collection.
In the 19th century women’s lives were typically focused on their families. This portrait exemplifies that idea, as Clara Mossler Petri is surrounded by her children, Louisa Antoinette, Arthur Otto, and Charles Hubert Junior.
[Group of women gathered for a convention in Houston], 1911, PICA 16634.
The convention that these women are attending is unidentified. It may have been a social gathering but might also have been a political rally, as many of the women are wearing lapel pins and ribbons.
[Women stenographers of the 35th Legislature], 1917, PICA 23540, Walter E. Long Collection.
In the early 20th century, women rarely held elected office but increasingly had jobs in behind-the-scenes positions. This group portrait depicts the women who were the stenographers for the 35th Legislative session.
That Texas Legislative Service Gang, May 25, 1937, PICA 19229.
The women in this portrait presumably were secretaries and administrative assistants at the Capitol, as they are posing with telephones, typewriters, and reports.

Dallas Attorney Betty Roberts argues at a Texas Senate committee hearing for Equal Rights for Women in front of Senators Abraham Kazen, Wardlow Lane, Jimmy Phillips, and Jep Fuller.
