2017 is big year for women’s suffrage movement events and special programs! on Vimeo.

The year 2017 seems like a long way into the future to be planning for women’s suffrage centennial events and special programs. But work is already underway for 2017 and the 100th anniversary of the Silent Sentinels picketing the White House in 1917. And 2017 is also the year for the New York State suffrage centennial.

Projects in the works include a national suffragist memorial in Lorton, Virginia; the continuation of the Women on 20s campaign; a proposed statue of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in NYC’s Central Park; a new effort by the National Women’s History Project to gather support for the designation of August 26th as a national holiday; and a 2016 centennial observance for Inez Milholland, American’s suffrage martyr. There’s also support for funding New York State’s women’s suffrage centennial commission, plus more in the works.

If the education and fundraising arm of your organization is interested in planning ahead, you’ll have access now to some great presenters whose schedules are filling up NOW. Celebrate women’s freedom to vote and be on the front lines in your community and region.

When planning for your organization, consider a five-year plan that will take your group through the 2020 national centyennial observance when American women will have been voting for 100 years.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Plan for August 26th, the women’s 4th of July! on Vimeo.

The year 2015 is the 95th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This means a birthday party for American women who in 2015 have been full U.S. citizens with voting rights for 95 years. The year 2020 marks the centennial of citizenship for American women, and an increasing number of people aren’t letting the holiday pass without recognition, and yes, a celebration.

This video points out some of the resources you can access online as you’re getting ready to sponsor an event for friends, family or your organization. The Library of Congress is one such resource.

SuffrageCentennials.com is a clearinghouse for women’s suffrage news, views, events and celebrations. SuffrageCentennials.com is also a multi-media platform that’s a resource for voters, policymakers, educators, students and citizens of all kinds.

Suffrage Centennials stand on the shoulders of The National Women’s History Project

The National Women’s History Project celebrates its 35th birthday! on Vimeo.

Scratch the surface of women’s history in the United States and you’ll discover the National Women’s History Project. If you’re planning an event for your school or organization, it’s likely that the National Women’s History Project has books, posters, or other resources available for you at its online store.

No one can speak about women’s history without finding their journey leading to the Santa Rosa, California organization started by women’s history activists Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett, and Bette Morgan. They led a coalition that successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress to designate March as Women’s History Month. The NWHP is known throughout the nation as a clearinghouse that provides essential information and training in multicultural women’s history for educators, community organizations, parents or anyone interested in expanding their understanding of women contributions to U.S. history.

On March 28, 2015 the National Women’s History Project will celebrate its 35th anniversary at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles, CA from 2 to 5 p.m. The program will recognize the women’s history honorees in attendance that include Darlene Clark Hine, Polly Welts Kaufman, Holly Near, Vicki Ruiz, Lynn Sherr, and Judy Yung. The $75 tickets are available through the National Women’s History Project web site. Special rates for out-of-town guests are available at the Los Angeles/North Glendale Hilton, 100 West Glenoaks Boulevard, Glendale, CA 91202 (818)956-5466.
