March 19, 2020 –
Nearly 125 years ago, Colorado women won the battle for the ballot in November, 1893. In the midst of severe economic depression, the rallying cry of “Let the Women Vote!”; was heard from Denver to Durango. Colorado’s astute male voters gained national attention when they approved equal suffrage by popular election for the first time in history. Many people do not know that Colorado women voted and ran for office a quarter-century before the 19th Amendment made women’s suffrage the law of the land in 1920! Join us on Thursday, Mar. 19, 2020 as Dr. Marcia Goldstein tells the story of the Colorado Women’s Struggle for Suffrage. Refreshments will be served at 6:45pm with the presentation beginning at 7:00pm at the Philip S. Miller Library 100 S. Wilcox St. Castle Rock, CO 80104.
