  • Shall Not Be Denied Preview


  • Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden formally opens "Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote," a new exhibition that features artifacts and documents from the women who changed political history 100 years ago during the struggle for women's suffrage. The exhibition highlights records from the personal collections of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and others in an effort to explore the stories of dozens of diverse women who shaped the suffrage movement and made history. Key items of the exhibit include the Declaration of Rights for Women, the "Declaration of Sentiments," images and film footage of political activity and an interactive display on suffragists who helped win the vote state by state. The exhibit is part of a yearlong initiative in 2019 inviting visitors to explore america's changemakers.
