Women's Suffrage Centennial

The majority of women in the United States won the right to vote in 1920, with the passage of the 19th amendment to the Constitution. The Vernon County Museum is commemorating this centennial with exhibits, videos, and articles. Using these resources, you can learn more about women's suffrage on both a local and national level.
