A Goddess for You: Suffrage Soap 

On March 3rd, 1913, thousands of women wearing white gathered in Washington, D.C. to call for a constitutional amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. Finally, in 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, ensuring 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 the account of sex.” Judy Chicago commemorates this hard fought battle by the suffragettes in 1913 and the triumph of the unprecedented number of women elected to the House of Representatives in 2019 by creating a white, unscented soap bar, symbolizing the white clothes worn by these powerful women. Although the soap bar and the women’s clothes are white, it is important to recognize the diversity of the feminist movement—then and now.
