Votes for Women: 100 Years of the 19th Amendment
March 21 – December 31, 2020

After its passage in Congress on June 4, 1919, the 19th Amendment needed to be ratified in 36 of the then-48 states in the U.S. On January 16, 1920, Indiana became the 26th state to ratify. In less than three months, Tennessee provided the final ratification needed and the amendment was officially adopted as part of the U.S. Constitution. This exhibit, written by Jamie Wagman, Associate Professor and Chair of History and Gender & Women’s Studies, Saint Mary’s College, and her students chronicles Indiana women’s suffrage and explores the amendment process.
