19th Amendment

Over-the-Rhine Museum

This summer, the Over-the-Rhine Museum is celebrating the contributions women have made to the history of the neighborhood. The new installment of the museum's quarterly lecture series "Three Acts in Over-the-Rhine" is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote. The series is virtual, and all three stories will be available online for the public to share.

The women's suffrage movement in the United States officially began with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848. In 1855, a National Woman Suffrage Conference was held in Cincinnati. But it took until the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920 for women to gain the right to vote.
