OUR MISSION:

The 100th anniversary of women voting in the United States is the centerpiece of this web site. Much has changed since we launched this site. A dream is becoming a reality in planning for what has become a nation-wide movement over the past few years.

WHO WE ARE:

SuffrageCentennials.com is a multi-media platform and clearing house for information, announcements, and features about local, state, and national suffrage celebrations, programs, performances, events, news and views. Regular postings, plus video and audio highlights. The National Federation of Press Women honored SuffrageCentennials.com in 2015 with a national media award.

WHAT IS OUR FOCUS?

We concentrate on primarily on votes for women centennial celebrations in the United States. Since we started publishing in 2013, the word has spread and there’s much more going on than we can cover. If you have suggestions or a submission, please get in touch.

WHO IS BEHIND SUFFRAGE CENTENNIALS?

Marguerite Kearns is editor of the award-winning Suffrage Centennials web site that has been publishing since 2013. She was co-chair of the national Inez Milholland observance with Robert P.J. Cooney Jr., a project of the National Women’s History Project (now the National Women’s History Alliance) Olivia Twine is contributing editor of SuffrageCentennials.com

PAST RECOGNITION

SuffrageCentennials.com was showered with attention by New Mexico Press Women at the organization’s annual conference and awards banquet on April 25, 2015 with a first-place award as a non-profit blog. Judges said that the perspectives expressed on Suffrage Centennials represent a “great introduction” to the subject of the women’s suffrage movement and the upcoming centennial celebrations, as well as being “a great topic” in its own right.  NMPW is New Mexico’s largest inclusive media organization.

IF YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT THE 2020 VOTES FOR WOMEN CENTENNIAL:
