Smithsonian Institution Exhibit at WCTC!

The WCTC Library was the recipient of a poster exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the National Portrait Gallery: Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence. This exhibit was created to honor the 100th anniversary of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment on August 18, 2020. (Did you know that Wisconsin was the first state to ratify this amendment?!*) The exhibit explores the complexity of the women's suffrage movement and the relevance of this history to Americans' lives today. It can be viewed on the middle floor of the Atrium in the C Building until September 30, 2020.

If you wish to view the exhibit virtually, you can see the posters online here.

*According to the National Park Service, on June 10, 1919, the Wisconsin legislature voted in favor of ratification, with only two assemblymen and one senator voting against it. Although Illinois had voted for ratification earlier in the day, an administrative error meant that they had to redo the vote a week later. That made Wisconsin the first across the finish line in the race to ratification.
