The Power of the Ballot Box

Suffrage and the Creation of a National Movement

January 10 - March 29, 2020

This year, 2020, the Museum celebrates the Centennial of Suffrage, one hundred years since women won the right to vote after ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. 

 

But the right to vote was just one of many issues that women sought to change. The first exhibit of this celebratory year, “From Abolition to Suffrage and Beyond: American Reform and the Creation of a National Movement,” explores the connection between women's lengthy struggles for inclusion and civil equality.

A group of abolitionists convened at Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848 to demand the reform of the laws and customs that had kept women in a secondary position in American society.

It wasn't until 1920 that the 19th Amendment giving women the vote, became law. Alice Paul viewed the victory as simply a stepping stone toward fuller women’s equality.
