Women’s Right to Vote

The year 2020 may be the Centennial of the 19th Amendment granting U.S. women the right to vote, but Colorado women actually blazed the trail and started voting 27 years earlier in 1893. Colorado was the first state to grant women the right to vote. Priscilla Walker, Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame (CWHF) Western Slope board member, is making several presentations on the other side of the divide. 

The presentation highlights CWHF the Inductees in the Hall who fought for the vote and their roles in women’s suffrage nationally. More information about those women is available on Google Arts & Culture in a CWHF virtual exhibit, Saluting 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage. You can see the exhibit at https://artsandculture.google.com/partner/colorado-womens-hall-of-fame
