To honor the Nevada suffragists of 100 years ago the Nevada Women’s History Project and the Nevada Humanities committee proudly announce the launch of the Nevada Suffrage Centennial website www.suffrage100nv.org
The Nevada Suffrage Centennial website includes suffrage history from 1864 to 1948, Nevada suffragist biographies and a Blog by Sally Zanjani.
The NWHP will be expanding the website to include the 2014 commemoration, articles by Nevada suffrage scholars and other suffrage facts.
Please visit www.suffrage100nv.org for information about Nevada women’s winning the right to vote one hundred years ago.

The National Women's History Project is involved in many efforts to promote multicultural women's history. We produce organizing guides, curriculum units, posters and display sets, videos, and a range of delightful celebration supplies. We also coordinate the Women's History Network, conduct teacher training conferences, and supply materials to people wherever they live through a Women's History Catalog.
Sarah Winnemucca Book
in Washington, DC
The Architect of the Capitol has purchased copies of It Can Be Done, Nevada presents the Sarah Winnemucca statue to the people of the United States for the Capitol Visitor’s Center Gift Shop! The Sarah Winnemucca statue is in a prominent location in the Capitol Visitor’s Center where everyone who comes to the Capitol will see her. Now the NWHP book about the statue will also be in the Gift Shop. For those of us involved in the Sarah Winnemucca statue it is wonderful to share the work and love of the people of Nevada in the making of the statue.
