Suffrage Centennial Traveling Exhibit
The legacy of women’s rights and the fight for suffrage in the Champlain
Valley is a complex story. It is a tale of countless known and unknown
women and men who fought for fairness and equality, while sometimes
falling into the traps of injustice themselves. Women’s suffrage is not a story
of linear progress that ended when women received the right to vote with
the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. It is a cycle of progress and
pitfalls that continues to this day.
