Women's History

Post Date: Sat, February 22, 2020

One hundred years ago the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving women in the U.S. the hard-won right to vote. In commemoration of the centennial, the Library’s Missouri Valley Special Collections has produced a new coloring book profiling local women who took part in the suffrage movement. A limited number of free copies will be available at KC Library locations beginning in March 2020 for Women’s History Month. A digital edition and downloads of all the profiles can be found at kchistory.org/coloringkc.
