THE NINETEENTH AMENDMENT: A LEGACY IN PORTRAITS

A few months ago, I started working on a portrait project to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment, and to remember the American women suffragists who for decades fought long and hard to force their government— and those to come— to recognize women had the right to vote.

It seems fitting that I wrap it up on the day that we learn that the American people have chosen the country’s first female vice president.

The women who participated in this project wrote essays that reflect on the legacy of the women suffragists. Please take a moment to listen to them and enjoy the photographs.
