Brandywine River Museum of Art Presents: Votes for Women: A Visual History

February 1 - June 7

Phone: 610.388.2700

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, the Brandywine River Museum of Art presents Votes for Women: A Visual History, an exhibition that rediscovers the visual language of the women’s suffrage movement. The long road to women’s suffrage, spanning the 19th and early-20th centuries, played out very differently from political movements today. In the absence of televised and digital media, the suffragists spread their message through magazines, political cartoons, posters, plays, parades and even through fashion. Focusing on the decade prior to ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, the exhibition examines the compelling imagery of the suffrage movement, revealing how the “look” of women’s rights developed and deciphering the important visual strategies that propelled it forward.
