At a Glance

The 19th Amendment passed in the United States Senate in 1919 and was ratified in 1920 — just 100 years ago. This monumental victory did not come without a lot of hard work, strength and determination of countless women across the country. Celebrate the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States as you take a trip to the homeland of the movement — Seneca Falls, New York — and pay homage to some of the most important figures in the fight for equal rights. During lectures with local experts, find out how New York became the focal point, and examine the complex intersection of race and Women’s Suffrage. Plus, visit the Women’s Rights Historical Park and other spots important to the fight for equal rights.
