Event Details

In 1920, many women around the country won the right to vote with the passage of the 19th amendment. The Badass Women of Keene walking tour delves into the history of that occasion from a local perspective. On tour, guests will visit a dozen spaces in downtown Keene related to the movement. This history-on-the-streets experience highlights empowered women from the community and shares one city’s involvement with a national Progressive Era movement. Learn new perspectives on an issue you learned about in school. Rethink the history of women’s suffrage in all of its complexity. (This tour was made possible thanks to the support of NH Humanities and The Putnam Foundation). Ticketing Details Tickets are $10/person.
