The Votes for Women Room was created to mark the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to The Constitution. This permanent exhibit explores a range of topics surrounding democracy, political movements, and women’s role in society through videos, interactive exhibits, a timeline, and interpretative panels.
Trace historic moments in American women’s history, as well as national and international events related to voting and human rights, along the Centerpiece Timeline. Learn more about Tennessee’s pivotal role in the ratification and important themes on race and culture wars through videos featuring writer Elaine Weiss. Discover the tactics and strategies people used in the “Anatomy of a Movement” interactive exhibit – and see how those strategies are used by today's activists.
A crucial focus of the Votes for Women Room is the Truth-Telling project featured in the Race section. This award-winning and thought-provoking digital exhibit is on permanent loan from the Frances Willard House Museum and is a reconciliation project on racism within historic women’s movements.
