The North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum is hosting a free program about the centennial anniversary of women getting the right to vote.

"Celebrating 100 Years of Votes for Women” is at 2 p.m. Sunday at the center on the Capitol grounds in Bismarck. It will include historic speeches, woman suffrage songs and a historic reenactment.

Presenters include Susan Wefald, Barbara Handy-Marchello, Kris Kitko, Bethany Andreasen, Deb Rogers, Brittany Bearsheart and state Supreme Court Justice Lisa McEvers.

The program is part of an afternoon of activities hosted by the North Dakota Woman Suffrage Centennial Committee.

All events are free.

The program is a partnership between the State Historical Society of North Dakota and the North Dakota Woman Suffrage Centennial Committee. It is part of the State Historical Society's Sensational Sundays series, which features free cultural programs that include a variety of lectures, concerts, movies and tours.
