The Justice Bell.

A century after it made its debut as a symbol of women’s suffrage, the Bell is scarcely remembered.

The Justice Bell Foundation would like to change that.


We’d like as many people as possible to know about this two-thousand-pound bronze icon and to consider the persistence of the women who used it to make their voices heard. 

As the nation gets ready to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 2020, we think this is the perfect time to shine a light on the Bell and to reaffirm the ideals of justice and equality embodied in it.

It is our hope that our projects, which include a replica Justice Bell, a documentary, presentations that feature rare photographs, and programs for schools, will inspire future generations to speak up, advocate for justice—and vote.


Justice Bell Replica
In partnership with the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the replica Justice Bell had its inaugural display in the rotunda of the Historic Landmark Building at PAFA from August 12 to 25, followed by a reception on August 26th, Women's Equality Day and the anniversary of the 19th Amendment. In 2020, our replica Justice Bell will begin a statewide tour. Learn about the exhibition at PAFA, the reception and the tour.

Justice Bell Story

Finding Justice is a film about an intrepid band of women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated symbol of the women's suffrage movement.

Our documentary, Finding Justice: The Untold Story About Women's Fight for the Vote, tells the story of a band of intrepid women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated icon of the women's suffrage movement. 
The creation of women suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the bell—modeled after the Liberty Bell—helped rally support around the cause of women’s suffrage in those last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
Finding Justice is the centerpiece of the Justice Bell Foundation Education Initiative. The Justice Bell Foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to bringing to light the story of the Justice Bell and the women who used it in their fight for the right to vote. It is our hope that the documentary will not only tell a rich and captivating story but will also inspire students to become civic leaders.
