We are a consortium of educational, cultural and historical groups located across the state of New Hampshire. We work within our organizations to create programming that inspires and informs our audiences about voting rights, most importantly about the 19th Amendment and the role New Hampshire suffragists played in its passage. We volunteer our time to meet and to promote each others’ efforts, so that we may offer them to you for your enjoyment and enrichment.

 


I’m running for governor in order to get people into the habit of thinking of women as governors. You know people have to think about a thing several centuries before they can get acclimated to the idea. I want to set the ball rolling. There isn’t a ghost of a reason why a woman should not be governor or president if she wants to be and is capable of it.
