  •  The  Women's Building was for the women involved in the fair. This  was created after the fair actually decided to let women participate.
  • The building was a place where The Board of Lady Managers could discuss topics and hear about other women's achievements.
  • The president of The Board of Lady Managers was Bertha Potter Palmer who was chosen for the honorary position.
  • At the opening of The Women's Building Bertha Potter Palmer said ''Even more important than the discovery of Columbus, which we are gathered together to celebrate, is the fact that the general government has just discovered women.''
  • The creation of The Board of Lady Managers and the opening of The Women's Building were pivotal moments in the Women's Rights movement because they were a time when the men who ran things realized they needed to include women and let them have places of power also.
