  • Margaret Chase Smith Library 56 Norridgewock Avenue Skowhegan, ME, 04976 (map)

The Margaret Chase Smith Library will use the occasion of the centennial of the suffrage movement to assess where women have come from in the political sphere -- a time when females during Margaret's life did not have the right to vote -- to where they are today, still knocking on the door of the presidency, a challenge which Senator Smith took on in 1964. Speakers will provided historical perspective and current updates on efforts to integrate women more fully into political participation and elected office.
