In 2020 we commemorate the Centennial of Women's Suffrage!

Please explore our Universal Suffrage page for a short history of amendments and laws that have brought us closer to universal suffrage. The struggle continues but we celebrate the steps we've taken.

Thanks to the National Park Service for this list of "20 Women to Know for 2020". You will be impressed with the variety of people on this list.

As you scroll this home page you will see a growing list of scheduled events many of which will highlight the suffrage struggle.
