A important part of San Francisco history, national history, and women’s history.

Celebrating the 19th Amendment, Suffragists in Print.

Tour the eighty-plus years of the struggle for women’s suffrage. By women-ing the press, suffragists took control of the narrative and their future. Meet some of the courageous women who demanded the vote in California, and across the nation. Learn how the West led the fight for suffrage, and how San Francisco women established themselves in local printing unions. Join us  in celebrating the centenary of the 19th Amendment.
