New Exhibit at Handley Library – The Strength of Women: Suffragette Movement
Our display this month shows elements of the local fight for women’s right to vote. The display highlights Fannie Baker Dunlap, who registered for the vote on October 2, 1920 at 56 years of age, and Mary Elizabeth Pidgeon, a member of the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia. In fact, Winchester’s first two women, Isabel E. Baker and Frances W. Beverly, registered to vote on August 27, 1920 – exactly 100 years ago this month. More information is available here and at the Stewart Bell Jr. Archives.
