As we get closer to the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, anticipation and excitement are building as more and more organizations across the Commonwealth are hosting activities that highlight the indefatigable women - and men - who often risked much to obtain the right to vote for women. We are honored to be working with local and national organizations to share the powerful and inspiring stories of the suffragists.
