Beyond the Ballot – St. Louis and Suffrage
Admission to the Missouri History Museum and this special exhibit is free, but advance reservations are required.
Women, often portrayed as secondary characters in the city’s formation, were actually key to the establishment, survival, and growth of St. Louis. Beyond the Ballot: St. Louis and Suffrage will showcase women who made an impact in St. Louis before gaining the vote in 1920.
Through an engaging mix of artifacts, images, media, and interactives, Beyond the Ballot will explore women’s unique roles in St. Louis history. One major element of the exhibit will trace the long history of the fight for woman’s suffrage in St. Louis and the events leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.
Organized by the Missouri History Museum. Presented by Wells Fargo.
