If only all of us could look this good on our 95th birthday!
The 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote, turns 95 today—and it still stands as a shining moment in America’s ongoing journey to meet the ideals of our country’s founding.
The League of Women Voters was born in the fight for the 19th Amendment’s ratification. In celebration of its 95th birthday, we’ve hauled out some vintage pictures of ordinary women who led the fight for its ratification.
I hope you’ll take a quick minute to enjoy this nostalgic look back at the last 95 years.
And I hope you’ll stand with us as we continue to defend the voting rights of all Americans from fresh attacks today.
