The 19th Amendment: How Women Won The Vote

To commemorate the centennial anniversary of voting rights for women, and as part of its Women and the Constitution initiative, the National Constitution Center has opened The 19th Amendment: How Women Won the Vote. This exhibit traces the triumphs and struggles that led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment, and features some of the many women who transformed constitutional history—including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, and Ida B. Wells—and allows visitors to better understand the long fight for women’s suffrage.

The 3,000-square-foot exhibit features nearly 100 artifacts, including 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, Pennsylvania’s ratification copy of the 19th Amendment, as well as various “Votes for Women” ephemera.
