A statewide traveling exhibit on the 19th Amendment centennial is now on exhibit through Nov. 6 at the Finney County Historical Museum's Front Door Gallery. The exhibit focuses on the struggle by Kansas and American women to gain the right to vote, which was achieved nationally 100 years ago when Tennessee became the necessary 36th U.S. state to ratify the constitutional amendment.  Women in Kansas succeeded in gaining the vote eight years earlier in 1912, but continued to push for universal American suffrage. The seven-panel exhibit is spnsored by the League of Women Voters of Kansas, and can be seen during the museum's normal hours of operation, 1-5 p.m. each day.
