One hundred years ago, on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, which gave women the right to vote. After years of struggle and education, organising and marching, American women won the right to participate in the democratic process. Not all women were included, but the basic argument was won – that women could not be kept out of decisions that affected their lives. Many years followed expanding the vote to include women of all colors, and years more of protecting the right to vote. Join the Women’s Caucus for Art, Michigan Chapter to honour the importance of the Centennial through art. Our jurors are Dr. Clare Rogan (Detroit Institute of Art), Amy Lazet (College for Creative Studies), and Michelle Word (Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum).
