The adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment enfranchised women in the United States, but it failed to provide women the same rights and privileges under the constitution and laws that men enjoyed. In February 1921, at a meeting in Washington, the National Woman’s Party disbanded as a suffrage organization and reorganized to establish women’s equal rights. The exhibit is separated into three sub-sections: the National Woman’s Party and the Equal Rights Movement, Black women’s involvement in the Equal Rights Movement and their lived experiences in the 1920s, and equal rights movements across the world.
