Statehouse launches new website for Ladies' Gallery
Tuesday, Mar. 2, 2010
In celebration of Women's History Month, the Ohio Statehouse today unveiled a new website that will serve as a resource for Ohio women in government and the Suffrage movement of the early 1900s.
Tours of the Ladies' Gallery and a special exhibit in the Map Room will also be available throughout March.
The website was created by the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board and the Ohio Channel. The site and its content are dedicated to the first six Ohio women legislators and the women's suffrage movement during the turn of the 20th century. The unveiling of the website further enhances the educational efforts of the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board and is designed to provide valuable information to legislators, educators, history buffs, media, and anyone interested in women in Ohio government.
