A new exhibition at the Wisconsin Historical Museum marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote. Join Laurel Miller as she presents the exhibit that was produced to shine a light on iconic Wisconsin women suffragists and political leaders, and how they helped gain the long overdue rights and recognition for women in Wisconsin and around the nation. Her presentation will include a video narrated by Simone Munson of the Wisconsin Historical Society.
