FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Exhibit Grand Opening: Suffrage Outside, Inside: the 19th Amendment at 101

WASHINGTON, DC – Join us for the Grand Opening of our Women’s Suffrage exhibit International Women’s Day, Tuesday, March 8th! Attendees will have the opportunity to be the first to explore the gallery and visit some of the public rooms throughout the historic home. Light refreshments will be served.

At the height of the pandemic in 2020, Suffrage Outside: the 19th Amendment at 100! celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment being passed during Wilson’s Presidency, and took history outside our museum and into our Historic Garden. The exhibit showcased how women’s work outside the home, the work and leadership of Black women pushed outside the ‘mainstream’ middle-class White women’s movement, protesting outside the White House, public protests outside in the streets, mobilization for war outside the United States as well as alliances with activists outside the United States, collectively propelled the American woman’s suffrage campaign to victory in 1920. This year, the exhibit takes residency inside our gallery with hundreds of one-of-a-kind material artifacts from over a hundred years ago supporting the themes we explored in Suffrage Outside!

Admission is FREE with a suggested donation of $10. Open house reception is 5 pm – 7:30 pm. For Patron’s safety, entries will be staggered: Reserve your timed entry admission.
