Hard Won, Not Done: Exhibit

Hard Won, Not Done: A Century's Struggle exhibit at the Old Capitol Museum

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment, the Old Capitol Museum presents the exhibition, “Hard Won, Not Done: A Century's Struggle.” An examination of the suffragists’ work at the national, state, and local levels which carried us through our first step toward gender equality: a woman’s right to vote. A monumental step, it was but the first of many—some still ahead.

In partnership with the League of Women Voters (who also celebrate 100 years in 2020) the exhibit features suffragist history and artifacts, examines themes of intersectionality, movement fragmentation, achievements and delays, and highlights some movement heroes with a call from the past to use your vote today.

NOTE: Due to the COVID related closure, the exhibit display dates have been extended to ensure our campus and community may visit when safe. In the meantime, please enjoy this virtual experience of the exhibit: https://www.thinglink.com/video/1364714752487456770
