Votes for Women

In 2020, we showcased Suffrage Showdown: Tennessee’s Pivotal Role in Votes for Women, an exhibition in the Museum of East Tennessee’s History’s Streetscape Gallery, which explored “suffrage showdowns” and the individuals that enacted change.

Women’s Political Activism in East Tennessee

Through a grant by Humanities Tennessee, we have had the opportunity to launch a virtual version of the exhibit to create better access to the story.
