The year 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment: 100 years of women voting. Early suffragists spent years, and in some cases entire lifespans advocating for the right to vote. As we enter 2020, we will be looking back on those stories. How did suffrage activists eventually win? Why did it take them so long? Who was left out of the struggle for the vote? Through the lens of history, we are also looking forward. What rights did women still need to fight for? Whose rights need protecting today? We will be adding relevant content and program information about the 19th Amendment leading up to and throughout 2020.
