CCHM History on Tap to present "Washington Women Win the Vote" (Photo) - 06/24/20

Vancouver, Wash. – Clark County Historical Museum welcomes Shanna Stevenson to the History on Tap live stream on Thursday, July 16, in “Washington Women Win the Vote”. The event begins at 7 p.m.

Join historian and author Shanna Stevenson to learn about Washington women's road to achieving the ballot and the suffragists who were part of the winning campaign.

“Vancouver women and men are part of the long history of activism for women’s voting rights in Washington where most women permanently achieved the vote in 1910, ten years before ratification of the federal amendment in 1920.” says Shanna Stevenson, “The national amendment centennial this year presents a great opportunity to tell the Washington story of suffrage by highlighting its Vancouver area connections.”

The evening will include the ever popular segment, "Ask Pat," in which local historian Pat Jollota answers one question about local history, as selected from social media (#AskPat), email, or submitted through the museum. As well as our trivia show featuring members of the League of Women Voters.

Shanna Stevenson is the former Historic Preservation Officer for Olympia, Thurston County, and Tumwater and former Coordinator of the Women’s History Consortium project at the Washington State Historical Society. She holds a BA in History and Education from Gonzaga University and a MPA from The Evergreen State College. She is the author of multiple books and articles about Washington and Women’s History including Women’s Votes, Women’s Voices: The Campaign for Equal Rights in Washington available from WSU Press.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at Sales close one hour prior to the start of the show. Ticket holders will receive a private link to the event 30 minutes prior to the show.

Support for July’s History on Tap is provided by LSW Architects, the Courtney Irvin Trust, and Wager Audio. Additional support is provided by Vancouver’s Downtown Association and ZZeppelin.
