Legacy Washington celebrates the 100th anniversary of American women gaining the right to vote with an exhibit, online profiles, lesson plans, and a student contest.

Washington has been Ahead of the Curve since it first granted women the right to vote in 1883.

Ahead of the Curve highlights the pioneering spirit of some larger-than-life women and little-known stories with big impacts on Washington, the nation, and beyond.
