Rightfully Hers

Friday, September 13, 2019
Open all week during normal library hours
Rockingham Free Public Library
65 Westminster St
Bellows Falls, VT

 

During the week of September 9 through 14, the Rockingham Library will host a popup exhibition from the National Archives,  Rightfully Hers, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of the ratification of the 19th amendment, women’s voting rights before and after the 19th, and its impact today.

Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all.

Shining a local light on this, writer and educator Nancy Olson will share her knowledge of Clarina Howard Nichols on Saturday, September 14 at 10:30 a.m. in the Biography Room of the Rockingham Library. Born in Townshend VT in 1810, Clarina Howard Nichols was an American journalist, lobbyist and public speaker involved in the women’s rights movements of the mid-19th century. Her editorials in the Windham County Democrat (published in Brattleboro, VT) addressed many women’s inequality issues without apology.

This event is free and open to the public. The Library is located at 65 Westminster Street in Bellows Falls, VT and is wheelchair accessible.  For more information, call (802) 463-4270, email programming@rockinghamlibrary.org or visit rockinghamlibrary.org
