FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — On Wednesday, April 7, Coconino County will unveil a suffrage marker at the Coconino County courthouse to commemorate the centennial of Women’s Voting Rights in collaboration with the National Collaborative for Women’s History Site (NCWHS) and the Pomeroy Foundation. 

The Arizona Women’s History Alliance (AWHA) identified the Coconino County courthouse as one of five historic sites in the state of Arizona as Anna Howard Shaw, a nation suffrage leader, gave a talk at the courthouse on October 18, 1912. Dr. Anna Howard Shaw is a significant figure in the national suffrage movement, campaigning across the country in the ultimately successful push for women’s right to vote. 

The closed event will be held at 2:30 p.m. on April 7 on the courthouse steps. Those interested may watch the ceremony live on Coconino County’s Facebook page (@coconinocounty). During the ceremony, remarks will be made by Chairman of the Coconino County Board of Supervisors Matt Ryan, District 1 Supervisor Patrice Horstman, and County Recorder Patty Hansen.
