Women Win the Vote

Take a virtual tour of the First Amendment Freedoms: Women Win the Vote exhibit, which tells the story of the fierce women who fought a decades-long battle so that women nationwide could vote. It displays images of historic front pages from the Newseum collection and photographs of the suffragists, plus touchable suffrage banners in purple, yellow and white, the colors of the movement.

This exhibit was displayed at Ronald Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport during the 100th anniversary in 2020 of ratification of the 19th Amendment.

Support for this exhibit was provided by Booz Allen Hamilton and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation.
