Suffrage Centennial Highlights

The State of Nevada is celebrating its suffrage centennial with events and activities. Everything is laid out on a great web site where you’ll find events, suffragist biographies, a blog, and a store. That’s not all.  November 7th is the anniversary day for Nevada women winning the vote. There’s a three-part television series called “Makers: Women in Nevada History” that’s scheduled to run on Vegas PBS starting this week.
