A couple weeks ago a dear friend of mine invited a group of us to visit the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma. It’s one of those institutions I’ve been meaning to visit one of these years; I don’t get down to Tacoma very often. They were opening a new exhibit about Northwest women and the suffrage movement, and that piqued my interest.
I’m a thoroughly modern woman, and sometimes take for granted my rights and freedoms. This exhibit is a reminder of the extraordinary women who fought for some of those rights a hundred years ago.
Women’s Votes, Women’s Voices is on view at the Washington State History Museum throught September 27.
