Votes for Women - A Portrait of Persistence

Votes for Women - A Portrait of Persistence

September 21 - November 30, 2020

Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence is a compelling exploration of the women's suffrage movement and its relevance to Americans' lives today.


The crusade for women's suffrage was one of the longest reform movements in American history. Between 1832 and 1920, women organized to claim their right to vote, first in their states or territories and then through petitioning for a federal amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Based on the National Portrait Gallery exhibition of the same name, Votes for Women seeks to expand our understanding of the suffrage movement in the United States. It explores women's political activism, the racism that challenged universal suffrage, and the ratification of the 19th Amendment that prohibits the government from denying U.S. citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex. It also addresses the suffrage movement's relevance to current voting rights issues across America.
