Join the Ramsey County Historical Society as they introduce a new online exhibition, Persistence: Continuing the Struggle for Suffrage and Equality, 1848-2020, with an online celebration. The event will also celebrate the past year of RCHS & Gibbs Farm.
The exhibition recognizes the champions at all levels of work who struggled to achieve voting rights for women in Minnesota, and whose example still serves activists in our community today. We commemorate these women and their work in Ramsey County and their contributions to American history and to the rights of women in this exhibition. The exhibition will feature some of the Minnesota women who were leaders in the fight for suffrage and women’s rights, telling their stories through historical information and photos, and well as with original portraits commissioned by RCHS and created by local, Minnesota, South Dakota and New York artists.
