Today, it seems incredible that just a century ago, American women had no voice in democracy. Just as remarkable is that it took over 70 years of campaigns, marches, hunger strikes, and arrests to pass the constitutional amendment guaranteeing them the right to vote.

Witness the decades-long fight for suffrage in a free members-only digital screening of the new Smithsonian Channel documentary She the People: Votes for Women. The film draws on rarely seen footage, expert opinions, and dozens of historic objects from the Smithsonian’s collections to tell the stories of the heroic women who fought to claim their rights as citizens. The legacy of their quest continues to shape our democracy.

Advocating for voting rights was a job so big that no woman could do it alone. Get to know women who worked in their communities to press for the right to vote in a series of brief videos from the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative.
