“Virginia Minor” – Ranger Kathy Bommarito

In 1874, the courageous St. Louis suffragist Virginia Minor took the Minor v. Happersett case to the U.S. Supreme Court, stating the 14th Amendment gave women the right to vote. Join Ranger Kathy Bommarito in learning about Virginia’s role in American history, and take part in hands-on activities unique to this time period.

Saturdays in March, Gateway Arch National Park hosts special programs that spotlight 18th-, 19th– and 20th-century women of Missouri and the West in honor of Women’s History Month. These family-based programs will take place in the Education Classroom located on the lower level of the Gateway Arch Visitor Center, and are free and open to all ages.
