Votes for Women- 100th Anniversary: Women in History

March is Women's History Month! Take a look at our resources and explore the important contributions by women to all aspects of our civilization.

100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment

On August 18, 1920 the 19th amendment was ratified and women had the right to vote (legally). The fight wasn't over because African American women, Native American women and others still struggled to win the vote for decades to come. This year, we celebrate a major step toward universal suffrage for citizens, and look forward to the work that still needs to be done.
