“Rightfully Hers” Display at the Museum

Museum Women's Vote Display Boulder City, Nevada

This month marks 100 years since the 19th Amendment was adopted granting women in the United States the right to vote.

If you’re out downtown and looking to see something new, then beat the heat and tuck into the Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum and go check out this new popup exhibition in the movie area. The Museum is FREE, and is open daily, from 7am to 7pm. Here is some additional information from Tiane Marie, the BCMHA Manager Museum/Collections:

Rightfully Hers is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives has launched a nationwide initiative and major exhibition that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage. The exhibition is presented in part by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.

Rightfully Hers co-curator Jennifer N. Johnson states: 

“The ratification of the 19th Amendment was a landmark moment in American history that dramatically changed the electorate, and although it enshrined in the U.S. Constitution fuller citizenship for women many remained unable to vote.”

This exhibit runs through August 29th.
