In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that gave U.S. women the right to vote, Johns Hopkins University engages the community to educate, explore, and raise awareness about this momentous occasion. In partnership with several Baltimore cultural institutions, we will offer public events, seminars, and exhibitions that inform and at times challenge our understanding of the history of the 19th Amendment and its effect on female empowerment today.
