Resource Guides: Women’s Right to Vote

August 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women receiving the right to vote in the United States.  The 19th Amendment was passed giving all white and black women the ability to be heard and to vote in the United States.  To celebrate this landmark achievement, we have compiled this resource guide of materials that we have available at the library or are available online to give you further information on this important topic.  All of these items are available by searching in the Evergreen Indiana catalog with your library card.
