Students from Hoover High School and McCardle Elementary School exhibited their interpretations of the women’s suffrage movement at ArtHop in downtown Fresno on Thursday night.

The movement waged a nearly 100-year fight win the right to vote for women in the United States. Finally, on Aug. 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring that they, like men, deserved the full rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
