Franklin County Historical Society: May’s Vote – November 22, 2020

Free streamed performance – must register
Starts at 2 p.m.

Winning the Fight and the Right!

2020 marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment, which gave most women nationwide the right to vote. Here in Washington State, many women won the right to vote a full decade before the 19th Amendment. Pretty amazing.

This streamed performance, followed by a live commentary and Q & A, features the lives of two very different Washington State women who built upon our state’s legacy and fought gallantly for the right of women to vote in the United States, marked by the 19th Amendment. Meet Emma Smith DeVoe and May Arkwright Hutton, two fascinating women, who helped win the fight and the right despite their vastly different views on how to succeed.

Join us in celebrating 100 years of women’s suffrage. Commentary and Q & A with Barbara Callander and Denise Winter, the two actors steeped in the knowledge of Mrs. DeVoe and Mrs. Hutton with every performance.
