Rightfully Hers and Evanston Women and the Fight for the Vote Exhibitions at the Evanston History Center

From the event organizer:
Evanston Women and the Fight for the Vote shares the story of the critical role that Evanston women like Frances Willard, Elizabeth Boynton Harbert, and Catharine Waugh McCulloch, and many others played in local, state, and national women’s suffrage movements. The exhibit will explore the tactics and strategies that suffragists used through the use of original artifacts, archival materials, costumes, and photographs from the EHC collection.

Rightfully Hers, a popup exhibition from the National Archives commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of the ratification of the 19th amendment, women’s voting rights before and after the 19th, and its impact today.
