Why Women Should Vote

Date / Time

December 2, 2019

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Based on a 1910 essay written by Jane Addams, this exhibition explores the widespread grassroots national movement organized by American women demanding the right to vote and to be recognized as full citizens in the United States. As we approach the 2020 Centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution and look towards the 2020 presidential election, we reflect on questions of women’s leadership, electoral power, voice, racism within women’s movements and women’s power to impact civic affairs.

This is an ongoing exhibition that is open to the public.

Museum Hours:
Tuesday to Friday & Sunday 9:00am – 5:00pm
Closed Mondays and Saturdays

Public Tours are offered Tuesday to Friday & Sunday at 10:00am & 3:00pm. For more information please visit our Public Tours page.
