The role of local women in politics is highlighted in the Stroud Mansion’s current special exhibit
FROM SUFFRAGE TO SERVICE100 Years of Monroe County Women in Politics
The current special exhibit at the Stroud Mansion celebrates the role of Monroe County women in politics.
From the women’s suffrage movement to securing the right to vote to holding elected positions in the county, local women have long been active participants in the political process. This exhibit highlights the fact that, while before 1920 women were unable to vote, 100 years later we have had many prominent female elected leaders in our community.
Visitors will see political memorabilia, campaign materials and giveaways, photographs, and other ephemera representing the importance of women in local politics.
