LWV to celebrate women’s suffrage in Indiana
A special exhibit exploring Hoosier women who fought for the right to vote is being sponsored next month by the League of Women Voters of Knox County, Vincennes State Historic Sites and the Knox County Public Library.
The exhibit will highlight the 100th anniversary of securing women’s right to vote and will be on display in the main library’s sunroom, 502 N. Seventh St., March 6-29 during regular library hours.
The League of Women Voters, Knox County, is also celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters. They will host viewings of the documentary film “Iron-Jawed Angels,” which covers the national effort to achieve the women’s vote, on a continuous loop throughout the month.
Additional display cases located throughout the main library will highlight significant women in our history.
