Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote

The Lake Wales History Museum hosts the “Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote” exhibit by the National Archives from Sept 29 – Nov 14. The exhibit highlights the struggle of activists throughout the history of the United States that worked to secure voting rights for all American women.
The ratification of the 19th Amendment was a landmark moment in American history that dramatically changed the electorate. It enshrined in the United States Constitution fuller citizenship for women and a more expansive democracy for the nation. This pop-up display contains simple messages about the expansion of the vote to millions of women, before and after the 19th amendment, and its impact today.
