ABA 19th Amendment traveling exhibit stops in Des Moines; highlights voting rights

WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2020 — The American Bar Association has joined with the Library of Congress and its Law Library to present a special traveling exhibit commemorating the 100th anniversary of women’s constitutional right to vote. The exhibit, hosted by Drake University Law School, will be on display at Drake Law Library in Des Moines from Jan. 21-31 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The ABA Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress unveiled “100 Years After the 19th Amendment: Their Legacy, and Our Future” at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco in August. Curated by the Library of Congress, the six-banner free-standing exhibit, which received a 2019 GDUSA American Graphic Design Award, features historic photos and artifacts, detailing the story of the battle for ratification and outlining the challenges that remain.
