The members of Women Sharing Art were tasked by the Islip Art Museum in 2019 to create art around the theme of the 100th Anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. It reads: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”
