      Rightfully Hers, A Pop-up Exhibition From the National Archives Commemorating Women’s Suffrage

      History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment (August 18, 1920) with Rightfully Hers, a new pop-up exhibition from the National Archives. Opening on August 3, Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of women’s voting rights before and after the 19th amendment, and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today. Rightfully Hers will be on display through August 31 in The New River Inn (231 SW Second Avenue).

      Rightfully Hers is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives has launched a nationwide initiative and major exhibition that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage. The exhibition is presented in part by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.

      History Fort Lauderdale is proud to showcase a variety of annual multicultural exhibits highlighting women, African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.
