National Portrait Gallery, “Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence”. The exhibit will outline the more than 80-year movement for women to obtain the right to vote as part of the larger struggle for equality that continued through the 1965 Civil Rights Act and arguably lingers today.
The presentation is divided chronologically and thematically to address:
Radical Women 1832-1869;
Women Activists 1870-1892;
The New Woman 1893-1912;
Compelling Tactics 1913-1916;
Militancy in the American Suffragist Movement 1917-1919;
The Nineteenth Amendment and Its Legacy;
These thematic explorations are complemented by a chronological narrative of visual biographies of some of the movement’s most influential leaders. We will have a picnic lunch in the courtyard. Members can pack and bring their own lunch or purchase a lunch in the shop.
