A more than 200-year timeline from the crafting of the constitution to today follows the long and tortuous history of women and the vote. A wealth of carefully researched and extensively reviewed dates, facts, images, and other primary documents traces the history and highlights key individuals and themes in the struggle for the vote.

A selection of posters with images and other primary documents from the Women and the Vote: Centennial Calendar will be displayed and made available. The posters can be used to stimulate discussion and exploration with teachers and students. Email us if you would like to view and download the gallery. WNDCEF@gmail.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have created a state-by-state compendium of promising practices for increasing youth voter registration and turnout. Click Here.
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.
