No Fee
This new exhibit anticipates the upcoming centennial of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote after an 80-year struggle that figures in a broader effort for equality that persists today.

The exhibit begins in the 1830’s as pioneers, influential leaders, activists and radicals saw their role in society change along with the evolution of tactics, while highlighting the exclusion of African American women from the main suffrage organizations as they sought equality. The exhibit features a variety of media and memorabilia to portray their struggles.

The tour will be led by Villager / NPG docent Lorna Grenadier.

Meet at the 8th Street and G Street NW lobby entrance at 11:00 am.

Cost: Free

Accessibility: The National Portrait Gallery is accessible through the 8th Street and G Street NW entrance ramp. NPG can be reached via Metro (Gallery Place or Metro Center or the 80 bus).

Registration is required. Members only please. Please note that the group size will be limited to 15 people due to the exhibit’s configuration. A wait list will be maintained.
