Japanese American Exclusion

Her Vote. Her Story.

Ratified 100 years ago, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. constitution restored women’s legal right to vote. Many women—and men—organized, protested, penned pamphlets, endured prison, and braved hunger strikes in support of women’s suffrage.

Merilee Mostov, Curator, takes you inside the show.

For many years, the 19th Amendment mostly benefited middle and upper class, white women. Additional laws and amendments were needed to assure equal voting rights and access for all women and men.
