Ladies Library Association installs stained-glass window in honor of woman’s suffrage

Good News Notes:

“A new stained-glass window has been added to the historic Ladies Library Association of Kalamazoo.

The window, created in honor of women’s suffrage, is six feet tall and four feet wide and includes 782 pieces of stained glass.

The ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, which prohibited states and the federal government from denying women the right to vote, came in the wake of decades of work by women’s right pioneers like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It was the single largest extension of democratic voting rights in the nation’s history.”
