In 1920 the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was adopted, prohibiting states and the federal government from denying U.S. citizens the right to vote on the basis of sex.

An Unfinished Revolution: The Woman’s Suffrage Centennial is an exhibition at the Greenwich Historical Society marking the 100th anniversary of this crucial piece of legislation.

The town of Greenwich was home to many of the Progressive Era’s social elite, including several notable suffragists who became national and state leaders in the movement for women’s equality. Told through stories of several of these notable figures, An Unfinished Revolution features original objects from the Greenwich Historical Society collections, as well as photographs, manuscripts, protest banners, items of clothing, and other material from museums, libraries, and private collections.
