The National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites is developing a grassroots Votes for Women Trail to highlight the role of each state in the 72-year battle to achieve women’s suffrage. Will you join this effort? Each state will hopefully appoint a coordinator to research those sites with a history with the women’s suffrage movement. This information will be entered into a comprehensive database and interactive nationwide map that will represent the story of the struggle for women’s suffrage.

In 2020, the United States will celebrate the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. It took 72 long years from the adoption of the Declaration of Rights and Sentiments in 1848 at the First Women’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY.
The Alice Paul Institute is working to bring leadership to the attention of young women. The t-shirts are part of this effort.
