UW Law Library Hosts 19th Amendment Centennial Exhibit

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting the constitutional right to vote for women.  In honor of the anniversary, the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress launched a traveling exhibit tracing the movement that not only secured passage of the 19th amendment, but also its influence on subsequent movements related to equal rights.
