Voices: Women in KanColl, for "We Will Vote!" (Fall 1997) VOICES, THE KANSAS COLLECTION ONLINE MAGAZINE



Women in KanColl


Women and their lives are well represented in the Kansas Collection. Take some time to visit the articles section. It includes wonderful portraits of the lives of women. Each tells a story of those who stepped before us, some are humorous, some are poignant, all enrich our lives. Women in the nineteenth century spent time differently than those who live in the last years of the millennium. What leaps from the page, however, is not the diversity of our experience. Instead, what we find is the shared and continuing thread of love for home and family, concern for fellow human beings and hopes for a bright future. The outward trappings of day-to-day life may be quite different, but intrinsic values have stayed the same:
