In honor of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and women’s constitutional right to vote, we’re offering 2,500 free popup displays, titled Rightfully Hers, to schools and cultural institutions nationwide!
The display contains simple messages exploring the sometimes complex history of the 19th amendment’s ratification, women’s voting rights before and after the 19th amendment, and its impact today.
In 2019, the National Archives delivered 1,600 of these popups to schools, libraries, and other organizations. Now, in partnership with the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission (WSCC), these additional pop-up displays will share the story of women’s fight for their right to vote with many more communities in 2020.

The Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission (WSCC) was formed by the U.S. Congress to coordinate the nationwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment, which was officially ratified and signed into the Constitution on August 26, 1920. Led by a bipartisan group of 14 women leaders, the WSCC has a nonpartisan mission to ensure that Americans in every state across the country have the chance to participate in the centennial and to learn about this important but often overlooked history. For more information about the WSCC, its initiatives, and commemorative events across the country throughout 2020, visit www.womensvote100.org.
The National Archives’ Rightfully Hers popup display is presented by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, Denise Gwyn Ferguson, and the National Archives Foundation.
