the 100th Anniversary of
introducing the CA 2020
Centennial Women's Suffrage Project
California women won the right to vote in 1911 but it wasn't until 1919 when Congress passed the 19
th Amendment (Susan B. Anthony amendment), that American women in all states had the right to vote. 36 states were needed to ratify the amendment and that occurred in August 1920 with the vote of Tennessee.
The historic women's suffrage campaign should be a testament to the importance of all citizens to be active in our democracy. There will be many celebrations throughout the USA, and in the various states celebrating the 100th anniversary. In California, a committee has been formed sponsored by the National Women's History Alliance called the CA 2020 Centennial Committee.
The committee is inviting elected officials, librarians, teachers, business leaders, community organizations and volunteers to join together in celebrating this historic event. The goal is to have local supporters and volunteers in every California county planning activities to celebrate the centennial.
