To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the Connecticut Secretary of State’s office wanted to honor those who fought to achieve women’s right to vote. Each of the stickers showcases a notable Connecticut suffragist or women’s rights activist and describes their contributions to the movement. The stickers honor women from diverse backgrounds who worked together to fight for equality. All of this was made possible with the help of Pamela Hovland, a local graphic designer, faculty member at Yale University, and longtime visual activist.
