Join the Dakota County Historical Society for our monthly book club, "Books From Our Shelves."
May's book is "Votes for Women!: American Suffragists and the Battle for the Ballot" by Winifred Conkling.
For nearly 150 years, American women did not have the right to vote. On August 18, 1920, they won that right, when the 19th Amendment to the Consitution was ratified at last. To achieve that victory, some of the fiercest, most passionate women in history marched, protested, and sometimes even broke the law - for more than eight decades.

We are offering this program free of charge, but encourage you to make a donation to the Dakota County Historical Society to offset the loss of revenue we are experiencing through cancelled in-person events. These donations will allow us to continue operating a high level and continue to provide presentations like this in the future.
This event is made possible by the Union Pacific Foundation COVID-19 Relief Grant.
