Women and the Vote: Centennial Calendar brings to life the long history of the struggle for women’s suffrage and honors the many who labored to extend the basic right to vote in the United States to all of us. The Foundation created this calendar in collaboration with scholars, the Belmont–Paul Women’s Equality National Monument, the National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs, and other organizations. It has been reviewed and is available at the National Park Service, the National Archives, and other places. Both educational and artistic, the calendar brings to life the struggle for the vote from the 1800s through the passage of these two critical amendments and beyond.
The calendar is available for sale on Amazon or Etsy. We also offer special rates for schools and have grants available to provide calendars for educational purposes. Please write to us at email@example.com.
In 1920, following passage of the 19th Amendment, fliers were distributed to women who had registered to vote. The Women and the Vote Voter Cards combine an historic flier from the collection of the Missouri Historical Society with a 2020 QR code that leads to Vote.org. At the site, eligible voters can get information and register to vote, and individuals 13 and older can pledge to register and receive a reminder message when they turn 18.
