The centennial anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment gives us the opportunity to celebrate 100 years of women’s constitutional right to vote, to educate about the Nineteenth Amendment and the battle for women’s suffrage, and to promote law that ensures women’s full and equal exercise of their right to vote and to participate in our democracy.
The American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress has launched a 19th Amendment traveling exhibit, "100 Years After the 19th Amendment: Their Legacy, and Our Future.” The exhibit features historic photos and artifacts and details the story of the battle for ratification and outlines the challenges that remain. The exhibit was recently awarded a 2019 GDUSA American Graphic Design Award.
The exhibit will be hosted at Drake January 21-31, 2020 and may be viewed in the Law Library during the hours it is open to the public.
