2014 is the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in Montana and the perfect moment to revisit the hidden history of Montana's women. For example: did you know that women were central to the founding libraries across the state? (One historian estimates 75% of libraries were founded by women!) Let’s talk about how to use the 2014 anniversary to engage our communities in reflecting on, learning from, and celebrating the history of women in Montana. Learn about opportunities to commemorate this anniversary and brainstorm ways that your library can get involved. Presented by Martha Kohl of the Montana State Historical Society.
