Women’s Suffrage Bronze Medal Designs
Created by Beth Zaiken and sculpted by Renata Gordon, obverses (heads side) depict a child’s reaching hand, amid adult women’s hands and arms holding up a heavy weight — a kind of "foundation" of stone. Inscriptions on the stone read: "WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE CENTENNIA."
Designed by Patricia Lucas-Morris with Gordon also sculpting, medal reverses (tails side) feature text of the 19th Amendment, ratified in 1920, written on the stripes of the flag of the United States. "1920" is inscribed at the bottom.
