On November 7, 1893, Colorado voters approved a referendum allowing women the right to vote – decades before the 19th Amendment. This short presentation by Megan Moriarty from the Museum of Boulder will examine the pioneering women who led the movement, the messaging they used to convince male voters to "give them a chance" and the influence the historic vote had on women living in the state.

 

This will be followed by updates on women today, what the League of Women Voters has been up to, and a rollout of the League’s new endowment and planned giving programs.
