Hi Gail! Great to hear about your projects. I wanted to throw an idea for
a place to check out there for you. If I remember correctly, didn't Ken
Burns recently put together a documentary detailing the women's suffrage
movement? If so, probably a place you could check is the pbs web site.
Hope all is well!
