This intriguing and thoughtful collection was created by the University of Washington's Digital Collection initiative, and it deals with the struggle of Washingtonian women who sought to obtain the right to vote in the 19th century. Visitors will find the digital exhibit is streamlined and easy to follow, with text, photos, and documents divided up between six sections, including the "Introduction" area, which offers a nice overview of this work. Page "One" teaches visitors how pioneer women in the West generally had greater rights than their sisters in the East, in exchange for the more difficult life they had to endure. Page "Four" explains how the defeat of the women suffrage law in 1898, and the resulting disinterest in the movement it caused, forced the movement to look to women's clubs to spread the message of women's voting rights. Visitors shouldn't miss the Alki Suffrage Club pamphlet, which talks about the rights of women, and why the male voting public should give women the right to vote.
