In 1910, Washington was only the 5th state to grant women the right to vote. 10 years later, after a 70-year struggle, women nationwide would win the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th amendment. Join the Mattatuck Museum for a film screening of “Courage in Corsets” which recounts the landmark election in November 1910 and story of the women whose bravery and perseverance renewed the suffragist effort bringing hope to millions across the country.
