The Museum will be featuring a new exhibit, Revealed: Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote, which is a revealing look at some of the toughest battles undertaken by women, several from New Jersey and New York, to win the right to vote.
2020 is the centennial year for the passage of the 19th Amendment. Suffragists, including New Jersey’s Alice Paul who pushed the boundaries of political and cultural courage, persisted despite arrests, prison terms, hunger strikes and forced-feedings in order to reach their goal. They challenged presidents and statesmen in order to achieve the passage of the 19th Amendment. This new exhibit tells the real story of how the vote was won.
