About the Centennial

100 Years of Women's suffrage in America

On August 18, 1920, seventy-two years after Elizabeth Cady Stanton's Declaration of Sentiments first claimed the enfranchisement of women at the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States finally gave women of this country their full voting rights.

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in America. While we celebrate the women who led the struggle, we also honor the Native American women who inspired them. Projects and events throughout the United States are ongoing and underway to commemorate this historic milestone.

Women Leading the Way seeks to foster unity and a greater sense of community and appreciation of humanity's shared experience. Enhancing the visibility of your school through a national exhibition will not only unite schools, but individuals and their work within your school.
