BELLOWS FALLS Rightfully Hers Pop-Up Exhibit with Local Connection: The National Archives and Records Administration commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of the ratification of the 19th amendment, women's voting rights before and after the 19th, and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today. (Also see 9/14, Local History). Through Saturday, September 14. Free. Rockingham Free Public Library, 65 Westminster St. Information: 802-463-4270; Click for more info on Web in new window.
