Online Exhibit

On both the national and the local level, women utilized new tactics and ideas to claim a political voice and influence for themselves. Many working-class and women of color participated in the movement, seeing suffrage as necessary to gain economic and social justice. Yet their contributions were frequently marginalized by the mainstream leaders and are largely absent from the historical record.

This website, created by Einav Rabinovitch-Fox, Lauren Dostal, Isabel Fedewa, Jewel Yoder Kuhns, Kellyn Toombs, and Abbey Wells, situates the campaign for suffrage in the longer narrative of the ongoing struggle for women’s rights, giving special attention to northeast Ohio and our University.
