AUGUST IS NATIONAL WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE MONTH
On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was certified into the U.S. Constitution, forever protecting American women’s right to vote.
As the centerpiece of our centennial commemorations and in recognition of this pivotal chapter in the story of American democracy, the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission worked with Congress to designate August 2020 as National Women’s Suffrage Month.
National Women’s Suffrage Month is a celebration of the women and men who fought for equality at the ballot box.
