Join Miranda Fraley-Rhodes, assistant chief curator and curator of the exhibition, Ratified! Tennessee Women and the Right to Vote, for insights on Tennessee became the crucial final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment, securing women's right to vote in the United States. Ratification was the culmination of decades of work by suffragists throughout the state that began in the 1800s, when Tennesseans debated what roles women should have in public life. Many African American and white women joined organizations in their churches and communities to help their neighbors and advocate for reforms like temperance, restricting child labor, and improving public health. Learn more about their stories and about the new exhibition.
