Voting rights for women were introduced into international law in 1948 when the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Heritage Square Museum 3800 Homer Street Los Angeles 323-225-2700

This complex of historic homes on a tree-lined boulevard began in 1969 as a living history museum. Through guided tours of eight historic structures and ever-changing exhibits, Heritage Square transports guests back in time to an era when electricity was a novelty, a trip to the beach was often a full-weekend activity, and manners were distinctly different from those of today.

 

In addition to free museum day co-sponsored by Museums of the Arroyo, many exhibits are featured such as the Vintage Doll Exhibit, and an Annual Victorian Tea and Fashion Show
