Women Physician Suffragists

In honor of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, AMWA has launched this on-line exhibition to celebrate the important contributions of women physicians to the suffrage movement.

The 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919 and ratified on August 18, 1920.

About the Women Physician Suffragists Exhibition

This exhibition was inspired by AMWA’s participation in Vision2020, a program of Drexel University College of Medicine which brought together a coalition of organizations and leaders in 2010 for a decade long initiative focused on women’s equality and suffrage. We are thrilled to launch this exhibition during Women’s History Month, March 2020, and hope that it will continue to grow in the coming years.
