Get ready to celebrate 2020, the US suffrage centennial, PLUS news!

Women’s Suffrage Movement Photographs from the Library of Congress on Vimeo.

The woman’s suffrage photo collection at the Library of Congress is fascinating and is by no means the entire collection. Consider it a beginning or a refresher. And keep your eye on the prize: suffrage movement events and celebrations from now through 2020, the nation’s big celebration, the centennial of all centennials.

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. In honor of the Centennial and the fight for women’s equality, the NWP is renewing its work to achieve full constitutional equality for women. It will change its name officially in the near future.

IN OTHER NEWS:

The National Woman’s Party hosted US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg on August 26th, Women’s Equality Day, at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The event was moderated by Jill C. Morrison of Georgetown Law on why the Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution is critically important.
