100 years later...We Won the vote! exhibition debuts at Sacramento History Museum

100 years later...We Won the vote! exhibition debuts at Sacramento History Museum

Nearly 100 years ago in a special election on October 10, 1911, women successfully won the right to vote in California.  Now, two museums in Sacramento will celebrate the hard-earned victory for full voting rights for women with the compelling exhibition We Won the Vote! 100 Years of Equal Suffrage in California.  

Produced jointly by The Center for Sacramento History and California State Parks, the exhibition will officially premiere at the Sacramento History Museum in Old Sacramento on Thursday, June 16, 2011.   After a three-month display period at the Sacramento History Museum, the exhibition will move to the State Capitol Museum (located inside the State Capitol building) with an opening on October 1, 2011.   The We Won the Vote! exhibition will remain at the State Capitol Museum through September 30, 2012.
