ARE YOU VOTING IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION?
Chances are that your grandparents, great grandparents, other family members and ancestors lobbied, picketed, agitated, and worked alongside the tens of thousands of US citizens who spent decades winning voting rights for women. The women’s voting rights victory was one of the largest civil rights campaigns of this nation spanning from before 1848 to 1920 and beyond.
