Nothing Less: Delaware, Women’s Suffrage, and Equal Rights

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which states that “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex”.

Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.

Susan B. Anthony, The Revolution, January 8, 1868


Delaware Humanities has developed the original panel exhibit Nothing Less, which examines Delaware’s history with women’s suffrage, its unique role in the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Equal Rights Amendment, and general voting rights in the United States.

We are currently looking for community partners to host the exhibit!

The Nothing Less pop-up exhibit would be effective in office locations, display windows with foot traffic, or during community outreach events. If you are interested in becoming one of our host organizations, please contact us. A limited quantity of physical copies of the panel exhibit are available. To be eligible for a copy, your organization must be planning a program related to suffrage, voting rights, and/or equal rights.

Copies can also be requested for K-12 schools (no programming required).


Organizations around the state and nation are celebrating the anniversary of the 19th Amendment through programming as well as providing resources.  Use the links below to learn more about women’s suffrage!
