CARSON—The 1920 presidential election was the first United States presidential election in which women were permitted to vote in all fifty states, and the 2020 US Presidential election will mark one hundred years of the women’s right to vote in the United States. The archive exhibit 100 Years of the Women’s Vote marks this anniversary, introducing visitors to the women and men who were at the forefront of the suffrage movement. Stressing the importance of enfranchisement in a thriving democracy, the exhibit highlights the women’s movement over the past 100 years, considering some of the current battles for equality we still face here in the United States, with a focus on women activists in our local South Bay community.
