The NVWT, a project of the National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites (NCWHS), identifies the many sites that were integral to the suffrage movement. This marker series commemorates the people, places and things instrumental to women gaining the right to vote in the United States in 1920 with the passing of the 19th Amendment.
