Four states have yet to celebrate their state suffrage centennials before 2020, the national suffrage centennial in 2020. Follow the progress on SuffrageCentennials.com
Join the National Women’s History Project’s new initiative— the establishment of a new Women’s History Alliance, which will help link women’s history advocates at the local, state, and federal level and significantly expand each group’s circle of influence.
Open to individuals and organizations, this new effort will help connect educators, performers, keepers of historic sites, agencies, and organizations in their work recognizing women’s history and preparing for the woman suffrage centennial in 2020.
Building on the success of Women’s History Month, the primary goal of the new Alliance is to work toward having Women’s Equality Day—August 26th, the anniversary of American women winning the right to vote—declared a federal holiday. There is no federal holiday recognizing women. Male figures are celebrated from President’s Day to Christmas. The great achievement of the 20th century—the emancipation and empowerment of women—calls for recognition at the national level.
