Tuesday, July 9th, 6:00pm – Young Souls Visit “Votes for Women” Exhibit

To celebrate the centennial of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote, let’s go to the National Portrait Gallery to see the exhibit “Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence.” This exhibit outlines the more than 80-year movement for women to obtain the right to vote as part of the larger struggle for equality that continued through the 1965 Civil Rights Act and today.

Let’s meet in the National Portrait Gallery courtyard at 6:00 pm. We’ll have an hour to explore the exhibit and then we’ll go to dinner at Wok and Roll. (Did you know? Wok and Roll is the site of the Mary Surratt Boarding House – where John Wilkes Booth and other conspirators met to plan Lincoln’s assassination.)
