Celebrate women's freedom to vote by following Suffrage Centennials, the "go-to" place for women's suffrage celebrations, trends, news. views, stories, and events. The growth is slow but sure and includes the "Suffragette" film from the U.K., the film "10 Days in a Madhouse" about early investigative reporter Nellie Bly, many great books and videos. New York State is gearing up for the centennial of celebrating 1915 when the referendum to grant women voting rights passed. It became a turning point in the women's suffrage movement nationally to get the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passed and finally ratified in 1920.
As time passes and the Votes for Women 2020 centennial approaches in the United States, there will be even more interest in this subject when not so long ago, people didn't know the meaning of the word "suffrage.:" They had to look it up in the dictionary. Now they realize that suffrage or the right to vote and participate in the democratic process is part of a large global movement, especially today.
