100 Years of the 19th Amendment
Date(s) - June 24, 2020
10:00 am - 11:00 am
This summer marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote in the United States. It also happens that for the first time in Missouri’s history both the Democratic Party and the Republican party are lead by Party Chairwomen.
These significant milestones provide an opportunity to reflect on the importance of universal suffrage, the progress we have made, and the work yet to be done. Join us to commemorate this anniversary and explore its meaning in the contemporary context.
