Carthage College intern Mia Morton has researched and designed this exhibit celebrating Women's Suffrage in Kenosha County. This exhibit looks at the figures and events in the efforts of local women to win the recognition of their civil rights, and the opposition to suffrage. Suffrage divided Kenosha's women between reformers and staunch traditionalists who asked "Why force a woman to vote?" This exhibit will run through the fall of 2020.

The Kenosha History Center's ongoing Women's History exhibit, "Public Freedom/Private Space," looks at women in the early 20th century. As their place in public society was slowly won, the separate spheres of Victorian society transformed into shared public and private spaces.
This exhibit makes use of the Dovie Horvitz Women's Collection, a curated collection of items representing the public and private lives of ordinary women from 1850 to 1950, and will be on display through 2020.
The collection was generously donated to the History Center by Mrs. Horvitz, and an online database for the collection is available from the UW Library system at: https://uwdc.library.wisc.edu/collections/doviehorvitz/.
