HARTFORD, Conn. - Ninety years and there's still work to be done. The League of Women Voters of Connecticut is marking nine decades with an exhibit opening at the State Capitol today (Thursday), featuring photos, memorabilia, and a timeline of women's involvement in government.

League President Jara Burnett says they're showcasing current projects, as well as the suffrage struggle as it affected local women who championed the cause - which reaches back to mid-1800s.

"The women who put everything - their social prestige, their health - on the line because they believed there ought to be equality, that women should vote."

The league was active in the women's rights movement in the 1960s, and Burnett says women's equality issues have long been on the agenda - and still are.

"In 1921, the League of Women Voters of Connecticut was lobbying the Connecticut Legislature for equal pay for women. Ninety years later, we're still not entirely there."

Burnett says limiting the influence of special interest money in government is one of the League's present-day top priorities. The exhibit's grand opening, which includes a reception in the Old Judiciary Room, is today at 2:00 p.m.
