Woman suffrage leaders came from the Berkshires and came to the Berkshires to promote the right to vote. To mark the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment extending the vote to women, the exhibit “Getting to Yes, Woman Suffrage in the Berkshire and Beyond” will be on display at the Berkshire Athenaeum from February 13 to March 31. Looking at the long journey to suffrage through the eyes of Berkshire County and its surroundings shows how one corner of the country intersected with the larger suffrage effort. One of the offerings in the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival in Pittsfield, the exhibit is a collaborative project undertaken by the Berkshire Historical Society, the Berkshire Athenaeum, OLLI and the Horizon program at Miss Hall’s School.
