Stay tuned for more details on this event. The the League of Women Voters will be a co-host of this major kick-off event in celebration of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. American women were granted the right to vote with the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified on August 18, 1920, after a 72-year fight by suffragists. As part of a national campaign to commemorate this historic event, North Carolina’s Department of Natural and Cultural Resources will kick off a campaign titled “She Changed the World: NC Women Breaking Barriers” in March 2019, continuing through November 2020. This campaign focuses on North Carolina women past and present who have achieved amazing things in multiple disciplines to help make the world a better place.
