Texas State Library and Archives Commission presents "Women’s Power, Women’s Vote” opening reception
“Women’s Power, Women’s Vote” is timed to coincide with the centenary of Texas’s ratification of the 19th Amendment. Texas ratified the constitutional amendment on June 28, 1919, making it the ninth of the 36 states needed for national approval. This exhibit explores the motivation for and evolution of this struggle and is documented through the personal collections of Texas women and government records. The 19th Amendment officially became law in August of 1920.
The grand opening event will include refreshments, special activities, and selected items on view from the collections, in addition to the main exhibit and a panel discussion.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through March 2020.
