NOW: Wisconsin & a woman’s right to vote...It’s a real history

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--Today marks a major milestone for a basic right as an American citizen, and Wisconsin plays a big role in it too. It’s the one hundred year anniversary since women have been able to vote. And the Badger state was the first in the union to actually ratify the 19th amendment to the constitution, really propelling the events of women’s suffrage into motion. The “Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear” near downtown Milwaukee has an exhibit commemorating this important breakthrough a century ago filled with photos, posters, and various memorabilia.

If you haven’t been to the Chudnow Museum, now is also the time to visit the temporary baseball exhibit centered around Milwaukee’s role with America’s favorite pastime. It features artifacts from the last hundred years or so. This particular exhibition will be on display until mid October. We have all the information about what you can see at this museum, including the hours of operation, click here.
