Today is Women’s Equality Day, when we commemorate the 96th anniversary of the certification of the 19th amendment!
Women’s suffrage has been a focus of our collections since our inception. One of our founders, Louise Noun, documented the women’s suffrage movement in Iowa from 1872 - 1920. You can read her book on the Iowa Digital Library, and learn more about women’s suffrage in Iowa by reading Iowa’s Suffrage Scrapbook.
No matter how you celebrate, have a fantastic Women’s Equality Day everyone!
