Making Her Mark: Philadelphia Women Fight for the Vote

Posted by Free Library of Philadelphia on April 6, 2021

The Free Library’s ongoing Making Her Mark exhibition is now available online as well as for in-person visits with a reservation, free of charge.

In 2020, the United States observed the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted the right to vote to some women, while excluding so many others. Making Her Mark: Philadelphia Women Fight for the Vote focuses on the timeline of the fight for the vote, how the 19th Amendment came about, how Philadelphia women made vital contributions to that fight, and how efforts to expand voting rights continue today. We hope Making Her Mark will inspire conversations and action around the rights of citizenship, activism, and voting.
