Securing the Vote: Women’s Suffrage in Indiana Traveling Exhibit

June 6 @ 10:00 am - June 30 @ 8:00 pm

10:00 am

Securing the Vote: Women’s Suffrage in Indiana is a new traveling exhibit from the Indiana Historical Society. From the first Indiana Woman’s Rights Convention held in Dublin, Indiana in 1851 to the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, Hoosier women fought hard for over 70 years to gain the right to vote. Securing the Vote: Women’s Suffrage in Indiana explores how women all across Indiana passionately labored for suffrage through countless meetings, campaigns, and other grassroots efforts. Despite many defeats and setbacks, they persisted towards the goal of full citizenship and the power to make change through voting.

 

Please check each individual location the exhibit travels to for the most accurate hours of operation.
