Suffrage Special Whistle Stop Tour | Wednesday, 19. August 2020

August 2020 marks the National Women’s Suffrage Centennial and to celebrate, we invite you to climb aboard the digitally delivered Suffrage Special Whistle Stop Tour!

This eight-episode video series explores our state’s connections to the larger national history of women’s suffrage, and honors Washington’s women changemakers who led the way then as well as those who continue to do so today. It is thematically based on the real life 1909 “Suffrage Special” train which carried local and national suffragists across the country and through Washington State from Spokane to Seattle in support of women’s fight for the vote.

Ride along with the Suffrage Special Whistle Stop Tour! We’re posting one segment daily from August 19-26 on the Washington State Historical Society and Votes for Women Centennial - Washington State Facebook pages.
