One hundred years ago, women secured the right to vote with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The struggle for “woman suffrage” lasted more than 70 years and was fought by women and men on both sides of the contest. This exhibit features original photographs, documents, and artifacts representing Connecticut individuals and organizations who argued, reasoned, marched, and took action for or against women’s right to vote.
