LECTURE:

The battle to win women’s right to vote wasn’t that long ago. As we approach the Centennial of the 19th Amendment, ratified by the Texas Legislature on June 28, 1919, it’s time to look at our own local history. What are the stories of the North Texas women who fought for the right to vote? How did their opinions change? And who should we be thanking today, every time we all go to the polls? Join Dallas Heritage Village Executive Director Melissa Prycer for a look at this story.
