      Votes for Women: Nebraska's Suffrage Story

      2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which guaranteed women the right to vote. The struggle for women's suffrage in Nebraska had been going on for more than sixty years when Nebraska finally ratified the amendment on August 2, 1919. Strong and well-funded opposition included both men and women; they had blocked women's suffrage for many complex reasons. Nebraska's suffragists were persistent and believed in making their Nebraska a better place. They were doctors, lawyers, educators, philanthropists, community volunteers, and others who worked diligently toward their vision of a better Nebraska. The suffragists' vision was not without bias and did not include suffrage for all. There were many struggles for equality for all Nebraskans both before and after ratification. This exhibit looks back at our state's unique place in the history of the women's suffrage movement, and some of the many women who broke barriers here.
