The exhibit will run through March 31, 2022–Women’s History Month. Tuesday-Saturday, 10 AM to 4PM.
Though the 19th Amendment ended sex discrimination in voting, it did not “give women the right to vote.” Voting rights were won through generations of protest, where millions of women marched, went on hunger strikes, lobbied congress, spoke on street corners, and fought at local, state, and federal levels to gain the right to vote.
And, not all women could vote in 1920: Jim Crow laws kept many Black women from voting, Anti-Asian legislation disenfranchised Asian-American women, and not all Native American women had the rights of US citizenship.
YOUR VOTE COUNTS!
