Suffrage Special Whistle Stop Tour: Pasco
 
All Aboard Whistle Stop #2!

Hosted by Franklin County Historical Society, at this 'whistle stop' we will learn about the early suffrage movement in Southeastern Washington before bringing it forward into the present era, celebrating the women of Hanford and Washington's first Muslim woman elected to public office, and ending with Elizabeth Cady Stanton's famous Solitude of Self speech, as performed by women of Pasco.
 
 
All Aboard Whistle Stop #3!

Visit our friends at Kittitas County Historical Museum for the third stop on our Suffrage Special Whistle Stop Tour. Here in Ellensburg, we learn about local suffrage leader Emma Smith DeVoe who lived nearby Thorp and visit a statewide virtual cemetery!
 
Forward together,
