Votes For Women: A Portrait Of Persistence – A Poster Exhibit from the Smithsonian

November 1 - December 31

The crusade for women’s suffrage is one of the longest reform movements in American history. Between 1832 and 1920, women citizens organized for the right to vote, agitating first in their states or territories and also, simultaneously, through petitioning for a federal amendment. Based on the National Portrait Gallery exhibition of the same name, Votes for Women will broaden visitors’ understanding of the suffrage movement in the United States. The poster exhibition will address women’s political activism, explore the racism that challenged universal suffrage, and document the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment which prohibits the government from denying U.S. citizens the right to vote on the basis of gender. It will also touch upon the suffrage movement’s relevance to current conversations on voting and voting rights across America. FREE!
