"The Portrait Gallery exhibition tells [a] complex history through an array of early photographic portraits, paintings, engravings, works on paper, lithographs, video, newspapers, postcards, books, ballots, banners, fliers, a china set, embroidery and pennants. Viewers will be able to see authentic objects, including original banners from the National Women's Party, a late-19th century ballot box and original writings by influential suffragists. "Votes for Women" will be on view at the National Portrait Gallery through January 5, 2020.
