Women’s History Exhibition
After the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1919, women gained the right to vote. Florence Harding was the first woman who was legally able to cast a vote for her husband, presidential candidate Warren G. Harding. Rare film clips from the Ohio Historical Society show a suffragette parade in Marion, Ohio, and Mr. and Mrs. Harding voting in the 1920 presidential election. An exhibit will feature Florence Harding’s personal items, including a favorite campaign necklace.
