The 19th Amendment: How Women Won the Vote
June 10 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm$5 – $18
To commemorate the centennial of voting rights for women, the National Constitution Center will open a new exhibit on June 10: The 19th Amendment: How Women Won the Vote. The exhibit will trace the triumphs and struggles that led to ratification of the 19th Amendment. It will feature some of the many women who transformed constitutional history, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, and Ida B. Wells. Visitors will better understand the long fight for women’s suffrage.
The 3,000SF exhibit will feature nearly 100 artifacts, including Lucretia Mott’s diary, a rare printing of the Declaration of Sentiments from the first women’s convention at Seneca Falls, a ballot box used to collect women’s votes in the late 1800s, a letter from jail written by a White House picketer, Pennsylvania’s ratification copy of the 19th Amendment, and various “Votes for Women” ephemera.
