  1. Exhibit: “Leading the Way-Montana Woman Suffrage & the Struggle for Equal Citizenship”

    April 21, 10:00 AM - May 9, 5:00 PM @ Second Floor of the Library, under the skylight.

    The Billings Public Library hosts a 5-panel exhibit which chronicles the civic history of women in Montana. Montana women seized their right to vote in November, 1914, when suffrage was extended to most women in the state. To help celebrate this important centennial, an ad-hoc committee of staff from the Mansfield Library of the University of Montana created the exhibit, "Leading the Way-Montana Woman Suffrage & the Struggle for Equal Citizenship". Many national suffrage supporters looked west for inspiration. Montana passed its suffrage referendum six years before it the 20th amendment to the US Constitution became the law of the land. The traveling exhibit uses historic photographs, archival documents, and other rare materials to highlight the role that Montana women played in fulfilling the promise of democracy and their full rights of citizenship.
