The traveling display “‘We Stand on Their Shoulders’: A History of Wisconsin Women and Voting” explores moments when women in Wisconsin gained political rights and highlights a few key leaders.

Covering the ratification of the 19th Amendment, 1921 Wisconsin Equal Rights Act, 1924 Indian Citizenship Act, and 1965 Voting Rights Act, the eight-panel display shares the important story of women’s quest for political rights and recognition through quotes, photographs, and a timeline of events.
