The passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment was possible because local, state, and national organizations and activists fought together for change at every level of society and government. Today, local groups are banding together across the country to preserve local suffrage history and honor the ongoing work of women's equality. Discover what is happening in your state today for suffrage.

Create history

2020 WVCI has partnered with the Votes for Women Trail from the National Collaborative for Women's History Sites to create a national, crowd-sourced, guided map of sites that were integral to the American suffrage movement. Become a historian and add sites from your local area to the map, or follow the trail and discover the depth of the fight for the ratification of the 19th amendment.


Hire a Suffrage Scholar or Performer

There's never a dull moment when an Ida B. Wells historic interpreter walks into a room. So bring a suffrage scholar or performer to your next program, and watch the audience engage in new ways as they learn the story of suffrage from those who know it best.
