She Voted: Her Fight, Our Right is an exhibit opening September 26, 2020, at the Minnesota History Center, St. Paul
On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution–upholding women’s right to vote–was signed into law. A new exhibit, developed in partnership with the League of Women Voters Minnesota, explores how Minnesota women shifted the political landscape before and after this landmark moment.
Join MNHS exhibit developer Kate Roberts and League of Women Voters-MN executive director Michelle Witte in conversation about how this exhibit is coming together. How do you tell this important story in a format that appeals to visitors ranging from politically active voters to fourth-graders on a school field trip? How do you make sure that all visitors understand who was at the table and who wasn’t before, during, and after the fight for this amendment? And how do you make good on the exhibit’s goal of preparing each visitor to take action to shape our future?
