This upcoming year is the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which gave women the right to vote in 1920. The Museum of the American Revolution and other local museums are presenting special exhibits honoring the influential moment in the country's history.

National Constitution Center
COMING SUMMER 2020: The National Constitution Center will open a new exhibit on the development of the women’s rights movement and the ratification of a voting rights amendment in 1920.
Brandywine River Museum of Art
COMING FEBRUARY 2020: Votes for Women: A Visual History will include drawings, illustrations, and posters from museums, historical societies, and private collections that visualize the complex political messages conveyed by suffragists. The exhibition will present a more inclusive historical narrative, recognizing the efforts of women of color and their community networks, which have long been ignored. The visual lessons of the suffrage movement provided a model for later activism, including the civil rights and social justice movements up to the present day, making this not just a centennial celebration, but a window into contemporary visual discourse.
