100 years of women voting

Get ready to celebrate! Nationwide, 65 organizations already are planning to commemorate 100 years of women’s suffrage in 2020.

That’s the year the 19th Amendment was passed. It’s also the year that the National American Suffrage Association, the first organization to picket at the White House, became the League of Women Voters.

“Today we are fighting to make sure everyone has the right to vote,” Dr. Wylecia Wiggs Harris, a former Girl Scout and chief executive officer or the League of Women Voters of the United States, recently told the delegates attending the National Girl Scout Convention. “Our work is not done.”
