How the Women’s Vote was Won in the West

How the Women’s Vote was Won in the West

For the past few years, the NJCHS has created detailed exhibits inspired by the theme of the Ninth Circuit's annual Civics Contest for high school students. The exhibits have traveled the Circuit to be enjoyed by students, teachers, attorneys, judges and court staff throughout the west. 

The 2019-2020 Civics Contest theme will focus on voting rights in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the 15th Amendment and 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The NJCHS -- in coordination with the wonderful work of authors for the latest edition of Western Legal History -- has designed an amazing, multi-panel exhibit focusing on women's suffrage and the west's role in leading the effort. The exhibit, like previous ones, will be available to districts throughout the Circuit.  

The Exhibit will leave Alaska on September 21, 2019.  It will be in 3rd floor Gallery of the  Loussac Public Library, 3600 Denali Street, September 16th-21st for Welcoming Week.
