CLOSED: Her Vote. Her Story: EXHIBIT FROM MARCH 6TH
100 years ago, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. constitution was ratified, restoring women’s legal right to vote. Her Vote. Her Story. celebrates this significant milestone. Many women — and men —organized, protested, penned pamphlets, created politically-charged cookbooks, endured prison, and braved hunger strikes to support the cause. Did you know that local educator and Mercer girl Elizabeth “Lizzie” Ordway was a leader in Washington’s suffrage movement?
Her Vote. Her Story. shines a light on the national, state, and local impact including what it means for women today.
From my experience in local government and at the state level, women’s voices make a difference in the kinds of policies that are looked at and the kinds of discussions that occur.
