Description: Join us during spring break for a week of programming celebrating our new exhibit Ballots for Both: The Fight for Equal Voting Rights. The 19th Amendment was ratified 95 years ago, and the Historical Society is celebrating a woman's right to vote in style with a week-long series of kids' programming. Each day, we'll play games and do activities relating to the discussion! Suffragists took to the streets to express their desire for the vote, marching in parades across the country. Participants on this last day will take place in a suffrage parade of our own, wearing our handmade pins and sashes and carrying banners! Please register for this program by Wednesday, April 8.
