Playing dress up for women’s suffrage

OLYMPIA — Dozens of Washington residents appeared in turn-of-the-century costume — and by that we mean the turn of the 20th, not the 21st, Century — at the Capitol today to celebrate the centennial of women receiving the right to vote in the state.

Capitol does the time warp

One hundred years ago today, women in Washington state received the right to vote through a measure that passed on that year’s ballot. In honor of the centennnial, women in men in period attire, some of them driving or riding in vintage autos, flooded the Capitol campus for music, speeches and celebrating.

Here, dozens listen to the New Horizons Band as they await a re-enactment of the delivery of the Nov. 8, 1910 election results.
