About this Item

Title
Exhibition Opening: "Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote"
Summary
On June 4, 1919, Congress, by joint resolution, approved the woman's suffrage amendment and sent it to the states for ratification. On the 100th anniversary of that date, the Library of Congress celebrated the opening night of a new exhibition "Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote." Handwritten letters, speeches, photographs and scrapbooks, created by American suffragists who persisted for more than 70 years to win voting rights for women, were featured in this exhibition that told the story of the largest reform movement in American history with documents and artifacts from the women who changed political history 100 years ago.
