We the Women Exhibition

unnamed
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives will launch a nationwide initiative and major exhibition that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage. Our fundraising event – We the Women – will serve as a launching point for this bold initiative and help provide financial support for the National Archives. The Exhibition will include:
  • Speakeasies, specialty cocktails and tasting stations from women-owned and led businesses including Drink Company, Columbia Room, Denizens Brewing Company, Chaia, Catoctin Creek Distilling Company, Gray Wolf Craft Distillery, Lyon Distilling Company, and Republic Restoratives
  • Light hors d’oeurves
  • Historic suffragist documents on view
  • Live jazz and swing music
  • Dance lessons including the “Charleston” by GottaSwing
  • Make your own suffragist-themed buttons and sashes
  • Chat with Archives curators and historians
  • After-hours access to museum exhibits
  • Themed photo booth
  • Cocktail attire, suffragist white — or come in 1920’s era theme (suffragist, Gatsby, etc.). There will be stations and props to help you get in character.
