Mapping Suffrage: The Push for the 19th Amendment in Washington, DC
Presented in partnership with the National Women's History Museum and A Tour of Her Own
Maps were an essential tool of the woman suffrage movement. They were used in promotional suffrage materials to place soapboxes, plan driving tours, and to demonstrate the progress of the movement as advocates fought for women’s right to vote in the United States.
Developed in partnership with A Tour of Her Own, a woman-founded and woman-owned organization and the first tourism company in Washington, D.C. to focus exclusively on women’s history, this interactive map uses images, videos, and a host of multimedia resources to highlight monuments and significant locations in and around Washington, D.C. that tell the story of the suffrage movement in our nation’s capital.
