Suffragists At Political Caucus

caucusOn February 22, 2014, three Nevada Women’s History Project members— Kathy Noneman (Bird Wilson), Holly Van Valkenburgh (Anne Martin) and Donna Clontz (the narrator) took a trip back to February 22, 1914 to portray three heroic Nevada women who waged a successful campaign to gain Nevada women the right to vote, 100 years ago.

In front of a crowd of over 400 people gathered for the Washoe County Democratic Caucus, they reenacted the story of how these leaders laid out the plans to persuade the all-male voters of that time to vote to give Nevada women the right to vote on November 3, 1914.
