Best Wishes for Thanksgiving from Suffrage Centennials

Vintage Thankgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

OUR MISSION FOR SUFFRAGECENTENNIALS.COM

During 2019 we will be pushing for the observance and celebration of 100 years that US women have been voting.

There are those who would rather let the centennial observance come and go without notice. There are a few who would just as soon abolish the 19th Amendment. And still others who are doing their best to manipulate and corrupt the electoral system. Voting machines are faulty. The electoral college is no longer a measure of the public will. Gerrymandering is a popular sport. And then pundits wring their hands about how participation is down. No wonder.

OUR ADVOCACY OF 2020 HAS SUPPORTED SPREADING THE WORD

Here at SuffrageCentennials.com, we cover trends in suffrage centennials. We highlight as many events, conferences, parades, and memorials as possible. It’s impossible to cover everything. But that isn’t the point. We believe centennial observances every 100 years gives us an opportunity to evaluate where we have been and where we are going. It’s unacceptable that it took 72 years for US women to win the right to vote. Now that we have this right, it’s clear that in 2023, US women will have been struggling for 100 years to write equal rights into the US Constitution.

LOOKING FORWARD TO THANKSGIVING IN 2018

Thanksgiving is a time to honor where we have been and where we are going next. We’re tired of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. It’s time to create a social and economic system that honors people, not profit.
