Your vote. Your voice.
An Unfinished Revolution: Women and the Vote commemorates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, showcasing the courage and resilience of women who have fought for the right to vote. The exhibition tells the story of years of struggle and sacrifice to secure the vote, and the ongoing fight by some groups for their right to vote.
An Unfinished Revolution: Women and the Vote addresses the larger pursuit for universal suffrage in the face of racial discrimination, age barriers and the disenfranchisement of felons and chronicles efforts such as the Civil Rights movement that work to ensure all citizens have a voice in their own government. Interactive elements challenge you on what year certain groups gained the right to vote, or whether they can vote at all.
Documents and objects from CMC’s collections, along with interactives and graphics, show the power of the vote, leaving you with a clear impression of why the vote is worth fighting for.
An Unfinished Revolution: Women and the Vote demonstrates the power of the vote and encourages you to make your own voice heard.
