Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence

 

Celebrate the centennial of women's suffrage in the U.S. with "Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence!" The story of women's suffrage is a story of voting rights, of inclusion in and exclusion from the franchise, and of our civic development as a nation. "Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence," a poster exhibit from the Smithsonian, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment and explores the complexity of the women's suffrage movement and the relevance of this history to Americans' lives today. "Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence" is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery. The project received support from the Smithsonian American History Initiative.
