WHO WE ARE:
SuffrageCentennials.com is a multi-media platform about local, state, and national suffrage celebrations,. Regular postings, plus video and audio highlights. The National Federation of Press Women honored SuffrageCentennials.com in 2015 with a national media award. Now we’re on the bandwagon to spread news of an equal rights struggle of 100 years. It’s bringing attention to the old wagon used by Edna Kearns and others in 1913. We’re doing our boring jobs that include spreading word of what happened 100 years ago when US women started the long journey to a suffrage centennial. This year it’s the slow-moving but eternal of keeping alive the tale of our ancestors carrying out what they could of keeping women’s rights alive.
WHAT IS OUR FOCUS?
We concentrate on primarily on votes for women centennial celebrations in the United States. The year 2023 is the 100th anniversary of US women working on the campaign for an equal rights amendment to the US Constitution.
WHAT IS BEHIND SUFFRAGE CENTENNIALS?
Watch this short video. It’s the story of the wagon that’s soon to be on permanent exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany, New York.
