Hall of Fame: Votes for Women

Posted by Barbara Peck on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 3:41 PM

2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States. The fight for women’s right to vote was long and took many twists and turns. 


Join us on Thursday, Nov. 14, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, to learn about the Connecticut women who fought on a local, state, and national level and on whose shoulders we stand. In addition, hear the perspective of those who were against The Vote and those who were left out. Be inspired by their stories to use your vote to give a voice to women. 


Artifacts related to women’s suffrage from the WHS collection will be on display. 


There is no charge for this event however reservations are recommended, register at www.westporthistory.org or call (203) 222-1424 x5.  Light refreshments will be served. 


Presented by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, to learn more visit cwhf.org/
