Women of Strength and Mind: The Suffrage Question in Kentucky
The University of Kentucky Libraries Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) has opened Women of Strength and Mind: The Suffrage Question in Kentucky, which will run through 2019 to celebrate the anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The exhibit, on view in the Great Hall of the Margaret I. King Library, features items from SCRC collections, including photographs, broadsides, and postcards that highlight the struggle for women’s suffrage in Kentucky. The exhibit examines the stereotype of the “suffragette” as well as the racism that fueled the suffrage movement, especially in southern states.
