The Path to Woman Suffrage in the United States: 1848–1920

The struggle toward woman suffrage in the United States included decades of debate leading up to and beyond the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920. Berea College Special Collections and Archives invites you to revisit that journey by encountering sixteen works published for and against the cause of woman suffrage during the nineteenth century and the early twentieth century.

All works shown in this online exhibit may be studied in the Special Collections and Archives reading room, by appointment.* For persons not able to visit campus, the exhibit provides hyperlinks to free online versions of the displayed texts.

*The Special Collections and Archives reading room is located in the northwest corner of the ground floor of Hutchins Library.
