The Long 19th Amendment Project is rethinking the way we write, teach, and talk about the history of women’s suffrage in the United States. This portal is a digital gateway to archival collections, datasets, teaching materials, and scholarship that help us tell a more complex and inclusive story about gender and voting rights in America.
