Women's Right to Vote
2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment giving women the right to vote, a struggle for equality that spanned decades. Massachusetts played an essential role in the movement and was home to many renowned suffragists, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, and Lucretia Mott. The Associates was proud to support the conservation and digitization of manuscripts relating to the suffrage movement, documents that continue to be relevant today.
