This is the first of a two-part online exhibition about the paths Montgomery County women forged to become active participants and leaders in county politics. Part One explores women’s suffrage in the county and its relationship to the growing network of women’s clubs from the late nineteenth century through the early 1930s. It highlights the lives of three local women — Lavinia Margaret Engle, Lucy Wright Trundle, and Jessie Ross Thomson — who worked for women’s rights in various ways.
Part Two, which will be released later this spring, will pick up where this first exhibition ends and address the path to politics post-1930s.
