NJ Women Vote was produced as part of New Jersey’s celebration of the 19th Amendment at 100. Five 90-second 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 reviews the challenges presented by racism, sexism, and classism in the fight for the ballot. Leading voices in the state-wide and national suffrage movements are introduced, including Lucy Stone, Alice Paul, and Fannie Lou Hamer. 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 the 2021 New York Emmy for Outstanding Historical/Cultural Programming (Short Form).
