Votes for Women Eyeglass Case

$ 19.95


Safeguard your spectacles in our microfiber eyeglass case with matching lens cloth. Our inspiring Votes for Women eyeglass case gives vivid life to the time just a century ago when American women took to the streets to secure the right to vote. The woman suffrage movement began in 1848 in Seneca Falls, NY. For the next 50 years, woman suffrage supporters worked to educate the public about the validity of female enfranchisement. By 1900, the campaign for woman suffrage became a mass movement. New York women gained suffrage in 1917, and American women won full voting rights in 1920, with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.

The museum’s Votes for Women eyeglass case features four bold suffragists in gilded sashes.
