Women's Votes
Last week!

If you haven't seen it yet, you only have a a few more days before it moves to the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle. 

Learn how women's voting influenced territorial and state history, such as prohibition laws. Through more than 200 artifacts, interactive kiosks and oral histories, learn how women from various ethnic and economic groups achieved a voice in public life. 

Among the artifacts on display are famed suffragette Susan B. Anthony's dress, cloak, glasses, inkwell, and a rare copy of the Declaration of Sentiments, the original manifest of women's rights, all on loan from the Women's Rights National Historical Park, the Susan B. Anthony House, and the Rochester Historical Society. Historic photos, ephemera, and artifacts from the Washington State Historical Society and numerous other Washington state organizations will also be on display.
