Suffrage Centennial: Texas Women and the Right to Vote


June 28, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Celebrating the vote, and the struggle for full democratic citizenship in Texas.  

Join us for a program on the evening of June 28, 2019 to commemorate the centennial of Texas' ratification of the 19th amendment. This program will coincide with the opening of an exhibition in the Museum gallery exploring the history of women's suffrage. For this evening program, a panel of historians will explore the movement leading up to women's suffrage, provide some historical context for this era of Texas history and highlight issues that still have continuing relevance today.
