One hundred years ago, women won the right to vote with the 19th Amendment. This victory occurred in 1920, thanks to the work of generations of diverse women. Explore the 70-year struggle that led to the amendment, as women joined the movement, adapted their tactics, and fought for their rights. This exciting story—with its many triumphs and failures—will mirror the National Constitution Center’s new exhibition opening in summer 2020.
