19th Amendment Centennial: 100 Years of Women's Suffrage (1920-2020)

In 2020, Fairfield University marks the 50th anniversary of coeducation at Fairfield University.  It has also been 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment in the United States, giving women the right to vote.  We honor both of these milestones with mural exhibits in the lobby of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library which run September 2020 - January 2021.  Join us in celebrating these pioneers of the women’s suffrage movement.
