Honor 2020, the suffrage centennial, and be a witness to US history!

Women Voters Thank Their Suffrage Ancestors from Marguerite Kearns on Vimeo.

BOOKS, FILM, EXHIBITS, AND NMEWS UPDATES CAN’T TELL THE ENTIRE STORY

Robert P.J. Cooney Jr. has released an update to his previous 2020 suffrage centennial news published in the Gazette of the National Women’s History Alliance. The coverage contains centennial products, contacts at state organizations, and news updates about the 2020 national celebration. His PDF news  blasts summarize the best of what’s out there.

Writer Marguerite Kearns muses about her book now in the publication pipeline for release in June of 2021 (“An Unfinished Revolution”). “It’s difficult to piece together what really happened behind the scenes in my family as my grandparents Edna and Wilmer participated in the early women’s rights movement…I had to reconstruct an enormous puzzle to end up with the truth,” she said recently.
