Calls for programs on women's suffrage and voting rights expansion

See all news

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote in New Hampshire and the United States, New Hampshire Humanities is seeking proposals for new Humanities to Go programs and Community Project Grant proposals related to the women’s suffrage movement and the expansion of voting rights. We are looking for proposals on any of the following topics:

- the Nineteenth Amendment

- the Voting Rights Act of 1965

- the Equal Rights Amendment

- the women’s suffrage movement in the U.S. and abroad

- voting rights in New Hampshire

- the expansion and restriction of voting rights in U.S. history.


In addition, New Hampshire Humanities and many educational and cultural organizations in our state are joining together to commemorate this anniversary, coordinating efforts though a common logo, website and hashtag. We want you to join in an exploration of the power and meaning of the vote, of how social change happens, and the unfinished business that getting the vote did not fully solve for diverse groups of women.
