Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence is a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution. This exhibit will broaden your understanding of the suffrage movement in the United States. We have also highlighted many local political activist women.
The poster exhibit will address women's political activism, explore the racism that challenged universal suffrage, and document the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment which prohibits the government from denying U.S. citizens the right to vote on the basis of gender.
Free to Members, General Admission applies.
Thank you to our local sponsors!
