Join us for “A Woman’s Place Is in . . . the Voting Booth!”: A History of the Woman Suffrage Movement at noon on October 3 at the Library of Virginia.
The Library of Virginia, Maymont Foundation, and the League of Women Voters team up for a rousing rally that’s sure to inspire everyone to cast their vote on Election Day. Costumed interpreters bring the struggle for woman suffrage to life as Dr. Sandra Treadway, Librarian of Virginia, describes the victories and setbacks of the determined female citizens who sought the right to vote during the 19th and early in the 20th centuries.
In addition, documents and materials related to the League of Women Voters’ predecessor—the Equal Suffrage League—will be on display. This program complements our exhibition You Have No Right: Law and Justice in Virginia. Style Weekly is the media sponsor for programming for You Have No Right: Law and Justice in Virginia.
A voter registration drive will be held after the program from 1:15 to 2:00 PM.
The Library of Virginia is located at 800 East Broad Street in historic downtown Richmond. There is free parking for this talk in the Library’s underground deck, which is accessible from either Eighth or Ninth streets.
