Rightfully Hers

August 3 - August 31   |  
History Fort Lauderdale
| Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. 

History Fort Lauderdale will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment (August 18, 1920) with Rightfully Hers, a new pop-up exhibition from the National Archives. Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of women’s voting rights before and after the 19th amendment and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity. The exhibition is presented in part by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.
