WOMEN FORGING THE WAY

Throughout 2020, the nation will commemorate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote in the U.S. The 19th amendment, ratified on Aug. 18, 1920, prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens on the basis of sex. To mark the centennial of this watershed moment in American history, the History Center has launched Women Forging the Way – an initiative focused on elevating women’s history in 2020 and beyond.
