Join the University for a look at some of the letters, photographs, and visual materials that are part of the suffrage collections at the University of Rochester. From Susan B. Anthony to local, on the ground activists, our collections are full of stories of the strategizing, perseverance, and determination of women who fought for the right to vote.

The University is pleased to present this program in conjunction with the 2020 Collaborative, a committee focused on marking the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, and celebrating the impact of Rochester women. Celebration events began in January 2020 and will continue through Meliora Weekend 2021. With a mindful eye on issues of intersectionality, inclusion, and exclusion, we recognize that not all women were able to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment on August 18, 1920.
