In 1919, the US Congress passed the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. Minnesota ratified the amendment in September, and by August of 1920, it had been adopted by all states. On the 100th anniversary, take a special tour that focuses on Minnesota women who played significant roles in securing the right to vote.

Learn about the struggles and success of Minnesota women who worked to persuade elected officials to grant women the vote. Plus, learn about the first women elected to office in Minnesota, the roles they played in state government, and how women today participate in elected office.
