Women’s Suffrage in Southwest Washington – March 5

The Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) is set to continue its 2020 speaker series 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5, with Tracy Kelly’s presentation of “Women’s Suffrage in Southwest Washington.” Kelly will tell the story of the women who led the fight for Women’s Rights in Southwest Washington. She’ll introduce listeners to major suffragists, explain what was happening locally and nationally that enticed Susan B. Anthony to visit Vancouver, and explore why even after gaining the right to vote, women continue to fight for Equal Rights both locally and nationally.

General admission for the event is $5, $4 for seniors and students, $3 for those under 18 and free for members, active duty military and veterans. The CCHM is located at 1511 Main S., Vancouver. Doors open at 5 p.m. More information can be found by emailing outreach@cchmuseum.org
