This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in the United States. It was a victory that took decades of work and the perseverance of countless women and men to make happen. And now, you can commemorate those historic individuals and with a 500-piece Votes for Women puzzle, which is available on UncommonGoods for $22.
The puzzle features many prominent historical figures like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who never got to vote in her lifetime but played a key role in the suffrage movement; Sojourner Truth, an escaped slave who fought fiercely for women’s rights; Frederick Douglass, a known supporter of women’s rights activists; and Susan B. Anthony, who also didn’t live long enough to cast a vote herself, but helped lay the groundwork for the amendment. Measuring 23 inches in diameter when complete, this illustrated puzzle also comes with a poster-sized pamphlet that includes more information about the historic event and the people involved.
