We Honor the Millions of Women Who Fought More than Seven Decades to Win the Vote

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States on account of sex. – Nineteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, Certified August 26, 1920

Support our mission to educate, inspire, and empower present and future generations to remain vigilant in the quest for equal rights beginning with a national memorial.

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Women were not included in the Constitution until the 19th Amendment.

The ratification of the 19th Amendment led to the largest single one-day increase of potential voters in the history of the United States.

It took 72 years to pass and ratify the 19th Amendment, and the Equal Rights Amendment has yet to be adopted to this day.
