Celebrating Women's Voices: Winning the Vote

Leading up to the 100th anniversary in August 2020 of women's right to vote, FRWRC is planning a year-long celebration honoring women who have used their voices to make our community and country more equal for all. We are asking for help wth learning about stories of women who were in the early group to vote in Federal elections after the 19th amendment was added to the Constitution, especially if they lived in Front Royal or Virginia. Do you have a story passed down from a mother, grandmother, aunt, or friend who participated in the local suffragette movement or who shared what it was like to vote for the very first time? We want to hear your stories. Please contact our office at 540-636-7007 or wrc@frwrc.org
