A free, portable exhibit on the American women’s suffrage movement is being offered to community libraries, museums, schools, government offices, and other organizations in Chandler, Sun Lakes, Litchfield Park Historical Museum, Tucson, Green Valley, and all around the state of Arizona to help celebrate the centennial of passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.
The exhibit and related presentations are being provided by The Questers, a nonprofit international group whose mission is to keep history alive through preservation and education.
The Questers Women’s Suffrage Centennial Exhibit tells the story of one of the most significant social movements in U.S. history. In easy-to-understand language, the exhibit explains why obtaining the right to vote was so vital for women. It describes the grueling 74-year struggle for the vote and the obstacles faced by both women and men suffragists. The final panel emphasizes that everyone makes history and encourages photo opportunities under the banner heading: “I Make History!”
The exhibit is composed of six individual, freestanding panels, each with its own lightweight carrying case. Each collapsible panel is three feet wide and six feet tall.
The Questers are also offering presentations on women’s suffrage and women’s history through its new speaker’s bureau. Questers’ members are available to give free talks on such topics as The Incredible History of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, What the Suffragists Wore, and How the West Led the Way for Woman Suffrage.
