“Rightfully Hers” display at Robey Memorial Library through the end of November ...

The ratification of the 19th Amendment was a landmark moment in American history that dramatically changed the electorate when it granted women in the United States the right to vote in elections. The “Rightfully Hers” display (pictured at left) at Robey Memorial Library in Waukon is available for public viewing throughout the month of November. This display is part of a grant from the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and the American Library Association. The grant also included books added to the library’s collection. The National Archives, in partnership with the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission (WSCC), provided an additional 2,500 “Rightfully Hers” pop-up displays (such as the one pictured at left) to cultural institutions nationwide in honor of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which acknowledged women’s right to vote in the United States.
