Sept 8-19 - Ohio Women Vote Free Exhibit

Ohio Women Vote - Free Exhibit September 8-19

 

The Oberlin Heritage Center is delighted to host “Ohio Women Vote: 100 years of Change,” a traveling exhibit of 12 informational banners that was curated and designed by the Ohio History Connection and funded by Ohio Humanities. These banners feature photographs, quotes, and biographies of Ohioan leaders in the suffrage movement, along with stories of political victories, racial barriers within the cause and to the ballot box, and the ongoing fight for equal rights.


The exhibit will be on view in OHC’s Monroe House at 73 ½ South Professor Street, along with some additional displays and takeaways that tell more Oberlin-focused stories about women’s suffrage. Visitors can come any time during OHC’s open hours, although please note that only one family or visiting group will be allowed in the building at a time, so there may be a brief waiting period. OHC is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. If you would like to save yourself the wait, please call ahead (440-774-1700) or email tourinfo@oberlingeritage.org to ask about viewing availability. This exhibit is free to see, but donations are very much appreciated. Please remember that masks are required.

 

School groups and clubs can make arrangements with Museum Education and Tour Coordinator Amanda Manahan about a virtual presentation or how to safely visit the exhibit. Please call (440) 774-1700 for more information.
