The historic images shown are included in the exhibition Votes for Women: A Visual History at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA. On view through September 27, 2020, the exhibition examines the compelling imagery of the suffrage movement and how the suffragists spread their message through magazines, political cartoons, posters, plays, protests, parades and fashion. Take a virtual tour of this rich visual history marking the centennial of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote in the U.S.
