The North Carolina Museum of History and Division of Archives and History staff began planning an exhibit in 1984 to highlight the history of North Carolina women. This exhibit, titled \"The Task That Is Ours,\" would cover the topic for the last 400 years and be the hallmark of the North Carolina Museum of History's new building. Only one previous exhibit promoted the history of one woman, Georgia Thompson Broadwick, a female parachutist in the early 20th-century.
In 1945, Mary Price organized the Committee of North Carolina (CNC) of the Southern Conference from Human Welfare. The CNC was a liberal, mixed-gender organization that included Communist sympathizers but was not connected to the Communist Party USA. Under Price's leadership, the CNC became the core of the Progressive Party in North Carolina. Price's role in the CNC served as an example for the participation in liberal politics of women in North Carolina.
