Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence
August 26, 2020 – November 14, 2020
Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence is an outdoor exhibit and scavenger hunt celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees women in the United States the right to vote. This exhibit shares important and accurate voting information provided by the Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office. These two resources provide a historical framework on voting rights, the importance of voting, and how to exercise the right to vote today. We invite you to participate in a regional scavenger hunt featuring a wide variety of challenges. Find the questions, maps, and more info at BernCo.gov/VotesForWomenNM or on Facebook and Instagram @VotesForWomenNM.
Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery. This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.
The exhibit was brought to the Albuquerque metro area by Bernalillo Community Museum and Gutiérrez Hubbell House History & Cultural Center, a Bernalillo County Open Space.
