Description

In 1853, suffragist and abolitionist Lucretia Coffin Mott stated, “Any great change must expect opposition.” Commemorating the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution the exhibition Any Great Change documents how women gained the vote and the ways they have used political power over the last century. That impact includes Georgia women and their role in politics once they gained the vote, both as elected officials and organizers.

The exhibition explores the decades-long struggle for women’s suffrage as well as the key groups, their strategies, and their leaders, including Emily C. MacDougald and her daughter, Emily Inman, owner of Swan House. MacDougald was president of the Equal Suffrage Party of Georgia and Inman participated in Atlanta suffrage parades.

The exhibition will be installed in a gallery space on Swan House’s second floor, now fully accessible via chair lift. Funding for the exhibition, as well as the chair lift installation, is generously provided by Emily Bourne Grigsby.
