Marching Towards Empowerment:

Beyond Suffrage

November 02, 2018 - January 27, 2019

"Forward, out of darkness, leave behind the night. Forward out of error, forward into light." - Inez Milholland​


The power of the First Amendment allows citizens to peacefully stand together and publicly demand they be heard by people in power.


With strength and endurance, women have marched throughout the history of our country to battle injustice and demand equal treatment from the United States government. Before women had the vote they had that one very important right granted to all US citizens that allowed their voices to be heard.


As you walk through this exhibit you walk within the footsteps of the fearless women who marched for our rights. With every step, they took these women pathed a path forward and ensured that our country lived up to our most prized ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
