Votes for Women!
The museum’s newest exhibition, Women’s Long Road – 100 Years to the Vote welcomes visitors with historical photographs, stories about people, and artifacts that all explore the wide-ranging efforts by many women (and some men) to gain the voting rights finally guaranteed in 1920 by the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The exhibition also looks at women’s lives generally from 1820 through 1920, as well as at voting issues that continue to be a vibrant part of public debate today. Women’s Long Road – 100 Years to the Vote will be on view through January 25, 2020.
Museum’s New Book Gains Rave Reviews
