This program is part of our series Celebrate the Centennial Anniversary of Women's Right to Vote.
Generations of women fought by protesting and picketing before the 19th Amendment, passed on August 26, 1920, gave them the constitutional right to vote. Jane Addams, co-founder of Chicago's Hull-House, advocated strongly for women's suffrage. Join us in recognizing the determination and complexity of the people who fought for the right to vote when we partner with Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, Reaching Across Illinois Library System, Arlington Heights Public Library District, Aurora Public Library and Gail Borden Public Library District to showcase these events.
