The five steps of the Project, Women Leading the Way.
A NATIONAL ART AND STORYTELLING PROJECT CELEBRATING THE CENTENNIAL OF THE SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT

High school teachers nationwide are invited to join Women Leading the Way, a national research, art and storytelling project celebrating the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage. It's free, open to all high schools in the U.S. and its territories, to all international high schools everywhere, and will run through the 2018-2019 school year.

The Project challenges students to explore the fundamental human right to vote by connecting their family history to the Suffrage Movement — and by reflecting on their experience both personally and within the larger context of our democracy.

Registration is open now.

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. 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.
