This selection of photographs commemorates the centennial of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution. Passed by Congress in 1919 and ratified on August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment granted American women the right to vote (though many women continued to be prevented from exercising that right). This installation examines how photography has portrayed, and fundamentally shaped, perceptions of women and feminist movements since the mid-1800s.
