A hundred years ago, American women achieved their first milestone in the long-going journey for equal rights. The suffragists won women the right to vote when the ratification of the 19th amendment into the US constitution was signed on August 26th, 1920.
This turning point was achieved after many years of struggle that women have led throughout the US, and it is one of the most significant accomplishments of the American female legacy.
In 2020, the 100th anniversary will be celebrated across the nation with exhibitions, special events, ceremonies, talks, and more.
