The Kentucky Woman Suffrage Project's work on Lexington and the surrounding Fayette County is the focus of the July 21 LexArts Gallery HOP. The 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States is in 2020. The Kentucky Woman Suffrage Project is preparing for the centennial. Lexington was a leader in building and sustaining the movement for women's right to vote.  The Gallery Hop will feature not only Lexington leaders in the local and state Woman Suffrage Movement but also Madeline McDowell Breckinridge, a national leader in women’s rights efforts. 

The exhibit is a collaboration of the Kentucky Woman Suffrage Project; Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate; the University of Kentucky Libraries' Special Collections Research Center;  Eastern Kentucky University Special Collections and Archives; and, the Lexington History Museum, Inc.
