About This Event

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the formal ratification by the states of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, guaranteeing and protecting women's right to vote. This historic centennial offers an unparalleled opportunity to commemorate a milestone of democracy and to explore its relevance to the issues of equal rights today. Gonzaga University is embracing the opportunity to honor this milestone, explore relevant issues, and enliven the tenets of Gonzaga’s mission for social justice and care for the whole person. The 19th: For Her, For All is Gonzaga’s Committee to recognize the centennial. The Jundt Art Museum celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment with this special exhibition, Prints by Women, featuring 20 images created by American female artists from each decade since 1920. The display includes prints created by several internationally-known artists such as Dorothy Dehner, Corita Kent, Alice Neel, Alison Saar, and Cindy Sherman.
