Centennial of Women's Suffrage celebrated at CREHST Museum

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.—The CREHST Museum is celebrating the centennial of Women's Suffrage in Washington.

In 1910 women were given the right to vote in Washington State.  It wasn't for another ten years until women in the rest of the nation could vote.

The CREHST Museum has an exhibit from the Washington State Historical Society displaying Women's Suffrage.  Costumes, hats, pictures and pieces of writing are just some of the art used to illustrate what women went through to get the right to vote.

"This is something that I think all women need to realize and appreciate what our women went through to get equal suffrage, to get equal rights to be able to vote along side men and really change the face of the nation," says Stacia Gunderson, Educator Director of CREHST Museum.

The exhibit will be at the CREHST Museum for the next three months.
