Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the
19th Amendment Granting Women’s Suffrage
The Ohio History Connection exhibit, Ohio Women Vote: 100 Years of Change, is coming to Marietta. The Washington County Historical Society is hosting an exhibit of twelve standing panels that tell the story of Ohio women from diverse backgrounds who participated in the early days of the women’s suffrage movement that led to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in August of 1920. Highlighting quotes from articles, speeches, books, letters and oral history interviews, the women come alive to speak in their own words. Washington County native, Frances Dana Barker Gage, is featured in the exhibit.
