First Lady Melania Trump will honor the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment with an exhibit showcasing artwork by young Americans.
“As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, it’s important to include our children in the conversation so they can learn and understand the history behind the Women’s Suffrage Movement” said First Lady Melania Trump. “For decades, women leaders lobbied, marched, and protested for equality and their right to vote in the United States. It is my hope that this project will both support and expand the important conversations taking place on equality and the impact of peaceful protests, while encouraging children to engage in the history behind this consequential movement in their own home states.”
Titled Building the Movement: America’s Youth Celebrate 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage, the exhibit will celebrate 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The WSCC is proud to work alongside the Office of the White House Curator and the Office of the First Lady as the official host of the Building the Movement exhibit.
