Wearing her Votes for Women sash, our limited edition suffragist doll is a wonderful reminder of the activists who helped shape our nation’s rich history. A lovely limited edition lady to mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, this 12 inch doll celebrates women’s push for the right to vote.
In 1915, American women were pushing for equal rights, particularly the right to vote in national elections. They lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution. Finally, Congress passed on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, which guarantees all American women the right to vote. The Nineteenth Amendment Joint Resolution of Congress and many other records related to women’s equal rights are preserved and protected in the National Archives.
