Suffrage Now: A 19th Amendment Centennial Exhibition





On August 18th 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, giving women in the US the right to vote. Since then it has become such an assumption of the body politic that it is all but unimaginable to conceive  of its absence. But it was a long and arduous campaign to reach this milestone, and it wasn’t, in fact, until  August 6th 1965, with the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, that all American‐born women were  guaranteed to share in this privilege.    

In SUFFRAGE NOW, the Elisabet Ney Museum asks contemporary American women photographers to  share photos that comment on the Centennial of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment. Photos can  be old or new, but must be taken by the submitting photographer. Given the current national health crisis,  the exhibition will be online only. The exhibition will open online on August 6 2020, and remain accessible  at least through Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021.
