Citizens at Last: The Woman Suffrage Movement in Texas

July 11 @ 11:00 am 4:00 pm

Womans Suffrage Movement

Beginning June 8th, at the Interurban Railway Museum, the Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation will present; 

“Citizens at Last: The Woman Suffrage Movement in Texas”. The exhibit focuses on the decades-long fight for woman suffrage in Texas with panel topics covering the national beginnings of the movement, early Texas leaders, transnational networks, anti-suffrage sentiments, segregated suffrage, and, the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. 

Based on publications and historical research about woman suffrage by Dr. Jessica Brannon-Wranosky and inspired by the book Citizens at Last: The Woman Suffrage Movement in Texas and an earlier exhibition of the same name created by the Woman’s Collection at Texas Woman’s University Library, this freestanding exhibition uses archival photographs, newspaper clippings, cartoons, and texts to display the struggle for woman suffrage in Texas.

While You’re Here!

Explore our outdoor exhibit “Vital to Victory”!

Vital to Victory features the often-untold lives of women in the rail industry.
