Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment with a special exhibit that explores the long history of women’s struggle to achieve the vote in the United States. While 1848 emerges as a pivotal moment in written history with the prominent Seneca Falls Convention in New York, women struggled for access to the vote long before 1848. This exhibit explores themes of the meaning of democracy and freedom to women across class and racial lines. It will highlight the ongoing struggle for equality from the founding of the nation through the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 through colorful textiles, artifacts, and documents.
