Fight for the Right


Fight for the Right: 100 Years of Women Voting
November 5, 2020 - May 30, 2021

Through a display of artifacts, historic photographs and interactive activities, this temporary exhibit chronicles women’s struggle for the right to the vote from the mid-19th century to the ratification of the 19th Amendment on Aug. 26, 1920, drawing parallels to the ongoing fight for women’s equality that continues today.

It was developed in collaboration with First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, who serves as California’s representative on the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission. The exhibit will be on view in person when indoor museums in Sacramento County are cleared to reopen by the California Department of Public Health.
