October 2020 PETTICOAT PATRIOTS
Exhibition panels loaned from Michigan Women Forward #HERStory (formerly the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame), supplemented with items from the Ella Sharp Museum’s collection. The Center created Petticoat Patriots: How Michigan Women Won the Right to Vote, in 2010 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote. The exhibit explores the history of women’s suffrage in Michigan and features the stories of more than 20 Michigan women who became leading suffragists.
