Temporary Exhibit: June 25-September 30
Fierce Foremothers, Steadfast Suffragists
Do you know that 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which granted (most) women the right to vote? A century ago, Margaret “Molly” Brown worked closely with prominent women’s rights activists such as Alva Vanderbilt Belmont and Colorado State Senator Helen Ring Robinson to extend suffrage, already granted in the West, to the rest of the nation.
The Molly Brown House Museum’s summer 2020 exhibit will highlight the stories of Margaret Brown and other women who were forces in the national suffrage movement. Included is a pop-up exhibit presented by the National Archives titled “Rightfully Hers” on the passage of the 19th amendment. Join us as we explore a century’s-old story of voting rights that empowers us to meaningfully champion democracy today!
