CAMBRIDGE — Downtown Cambridge shopkeepers celebrated the 100th anniversary of votes for women with a display of sashes worn by American suffragists in support of the Nineteenth Amendment.

Up and down Poplar and Race Streets, shops showed the purple, white and gold sashes made by Cambridge quilter Anne McAnulty for the Mid-Shore League of Women Voters’ project. The display coincides with the art show at the Dorchester Center for the Arts entitled, “Women in the World: the Impact of the Nineteenth Amendment” which ran from July 3-25.
