The exhibit also features historic photographs woven throughout, bringing the history of the women’s suffrage movement to life through the eyes of children today.
“The ratification of the 19th Amendment and the women’s right to vote was a turning point in the history of women’s rights in the United States and stood as an example to the world,” she said.
“Since taking office, my husband and this Administration have taken historic measures to empower and support women in the United States and around the world.”
