Since the early 1800s women have been struggling against the odds for the right to vote and equality with men. The passing of the 19th Amendment, women's right to vote, on August 18, 1920 marked a significant milestone in women’s rights and advancements in equality. The highlight of this Jukebox is the slideshow, which is a compilation of audio and images.

This Feminist History Project traces the struggle for women's suffrage through oral history. Sherna Gluck was the director of the Oral History Program and was a teacher in the Women's Studies Program at California State University, Long Beach and created this project in 1974. This project was digitized by the Alaska and Polar Regions Department staff in 2009.
