NJ Women Vote was produced as part of New Jersey’s celebration of the 19th Amendment at 100. Five short episodes explore the changes in voting rights in New Jersey, from 1776 to 1964. Premised on the belief that the struggle for the right to vote is as relevant now as it was nearly 250 years ago, the series focuses on Lucy Stone, Alice Paul, and Fannie Lou Hamer among others.
NJ Women Vote is a project of the New Jersey Historical Commission, sponsored by NJ Women Vote: The 19th Amendment at 100 with support from the Alice Paul Institute and Middlesex County, NJ.
NJ Women Vote won a 2021 New York Emmy for Outstanding Historical/Cultural Programming.
