Brief but Spectacular History of Women’s Suffrage in America

An interactive presentation led by Priscilla Burnham, the League of Women Voters Vice President and Director of Voter Services celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the national League of Women Voters. This program involved 30 volunteers taking on historic roles!

The LWV of Marquette County presented this ‘living history project’ to chronicle the long, tumultuous, but ultimately successful struggle to win full suffrage for the women of America, culminating in the passage of the 19th Amendment 100 years ago. The story of the battle for women’s right to vote will be told through the voices, the writings, the images and events that marked this gripping, polarizing time in America’s history.
