Do You Know the Role Oklahoma Played in Winning Women's Right to Vote?

The National Women's History Project has announced the kick-off to a 10-year plan for the Woman Suffrage Centennial in 2020.

They will be working with The National Collaborative for Women's History Sites (NCWHS) to create a national clearinghouse for information on state-by-state Woman Suffrage celebrations leading up to the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution on August 26, 2020. Their goal is the creation of a nationwide Woman Suffrage Trail highlighting the role of each state in the 72-year national campaign that won the right to vote for women.

The National Women's History Project has achieved great progress in their first 30 years of Writing Women Back into History.  Now it is time for Oklahomans and others to start thinking about how we want to celebrate the Woman Suffrage Centennial in 2020! If you have any thoughts, leave a comment please!
