Votes for Women: Taking our Place in Politics
This exhibit was inspired by the campaign for women’s suffrage in the United States, the 100th
anniversary of the final pushes in the Senate for the 19th Amendment, and the ratification
nationally of women’s right to vote. Alliances formed for and against women’s suffrage reveal
important divisions in American society in the first part of the 20th century, with roots before
the Civil War, and branches that continue to this day. Votes for Women explores women’s
sphere as it expands to include political office, considers the changing understandings of civic
virtue, and reveals difficult choices that political movements must make in pursuit of their
goals. Throughout, it highlights topics with a contemporary resonance: women’s position in
society, social protest, racial divisions, and political engagement.

Tea socials played an important role in women’s suffrage, providing a respectable and feminine occasion for getting together, holding discussions, and disseminating information about the movement.
