NOVEMBER 21, 2019

The Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, which was established to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 2020, will be organizing a number of activities and events to celebrate this important milestone in our state and nation’s history, as well as highlighting the individuals and organizations that played an instrumental role in securing women’s right to vote.  In order to increase visibility and awareness of the 100-year anniversary, the Commission launched a website, in partnership with Indiana Humanities, to house resources, recent news, and upcoming events. 

 

The Commission encourages local communities and organizations across Indiana’s 92 counties to commemorate the centennial anniversary of women’s right to vote in their own way as well.  If there is an event or activity to celebrate Hoosier women winning the right to vote that your community or organization would like included on the website’s Master Events Calendar, please email Contact@IndianaSuffrage100.org.  The Commission looks forward to celebrating this important anniversary in the months to come!
