The passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, if passed in 2019, won’t be the end of the debate over the next Amendment to empower women in the US Constitution. However, it’s a major stepping stone to reaching the goal. Accompanying this rite of passage will be considerable attention given to August 2020 when US women will have been voting for 100 years.
We’ve been on the case here at Suffrage Centennials since 2013, knocking on doors, producing and circulating videos, telling stories and participating in an incredible national movement to bring the story of American women into the forefront. There are suffrage commissions in states across the country. We now have a national suffrage commission that met for the first time in December of 2018.
More women are running for election than ever before. And we’re continuing on, publishing with 2020 in mind. And how about you? Sign up for posts to SuffrageCentennials.com.
