Rightfully Hers: A New Popup Exhibition from the National Archives

Friday, March 20, 2020

"Rightfully Hers" is presented, in part, by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.

"Rightfully Hers," a new popup exhibition from the National Archives, commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The exhibit contains simple messages exploring the history of the 19th amendment ratification, women’s voting rights prior to and after the ratification, and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote into the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today.
