Bryn Mawr College Libraries, Special CollectionsJoin us in the Millstone Café overlooking the scenic Brandywine River for a continental breakfast followed by a tour of Votes for Women: A Visual History.

      The year 2020 marks the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, in which women won the right to vote—a major step forward for women's equality. The long road to women's suffrage, spanning the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, played out very differently from political movements today. In the absence of televised and digital media, the suffragists spread their message through magazines, political cartoons, posters, plays, parades, and even through fashion. This exhibition examines the visual culture of the suffrage movement, revealing how the "look" of women's rights developed along with the important visual strategies that propelled the campaign. 

      With over 200 objects drawn from private collections, libraries, and archives, the exhibition demonstrates how the visual lessons of the suffrage movement provided a model for later activism, including the civil rights and social justice movements up to the present day, making this not just a centennial commemoration, but a window into contemporary discourse. 

      Museum doors will open at 8:45 a.m. The tour will begin at 9:30 a.m. following a continental breakfast in the Millstone Cafe at 9:00 a.m. 

      Cost: $30 per person
