Visit the first part of our popular off-site exhibit, “Cupertino Women Making Things Happen,” on the second floor of the Cupertino Library. The first part of this three-part exhibit highlights notable local women from the mid-1800s to 1950. Among the women featured is Elizabeth Lowe Watson, the foremost leader of the California Women’s Suffrage Movement. She served as President of the California Equal Suffrage Association from 1909-1911. She owned and farmed “Sunny Brae,” located off Bubb Road, with her sons. The exhibit was conceived in honor of the hundredth anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in the United States.
