Photo Caption: Picketing in strategic locations was a tactic intended to keep the matter of equal suffrage before the public and in the papers, in 1917.

Giants are impressive. "Not All Giants Are Men" is the title of a temporary exhibit opening on Sunday, Sept. 1, at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center. The exhibit will run through Oct. 10.

Trails Center Presents Temporary Exhibit:  “Not All Giants are Men”

Remember the story of Jack and the beanstalk?  That tale has impressed countless children with the image of a frighteningly huge man, as did a much older story that featured another oversize man - the unforgettable account of David and Goliath.

Giants are impressive. "Not All Giants Are Men" is the title of a temporary exhibit opening on Sunday, Sept. 1, at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center. The exhibit will run through Oct. 10.

Celebrating the dedicated world changers who succeeded in achieving universal suffrage in the United States, the exhibit will feature outstanding photographs from the Library of Congress, depicting 20th century women of remarkable courage and conviction.

Wyoming's own longest-serving Congressman Frank Mondell is also featured as an outspoken advocate for the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  “We would as soon think of surrendering our charter of statehood, gentlemen, as to deny the women of our Commonwealth the right to vote,” said the congressman, at a formal hearing on the matter in 1913.

“The lessons of the woman suffrage movement are greater than its positive results,” said the exhibit’s curator, Trails Center Interpreter Reid Miller. “What was achieved is affirmation that our system of government is responsive to what is fundamentally right for all people, rather than just for one element of our diverse culture.”

Stop in at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center on Sunday, Sept. 1 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to view the exhibit, or starting Tuesday, Sept. 3, during off-season hours, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.   

The Trails Center will be closed on Labor Day, September 2.  Admission is free to all.  For more information, contact us at 307-261-7780.
