SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT AND WOMEN'S HISTORY
This exhibit contains photographs, documents, and artifacts from the Oshkosh Public Museum's collection relating to the suffrage movement. This material is associated to Sarah James, president of the Oshkosh Equal Suffrage League, and Jessie Jack Hooper, who worked as a lobbyist for the National American Woman's Suffrage Association.
Following passage of the 19th Amendment, Jesse Jack Hooper became active in the National League of Women Voters. She was selected by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin in 1922 to run as its candidate for the United States Senate against Robert E. La Follette, but was defeated.
