National Women’s History Project publishes Gazette about 2020 centennial!

Headlines about Women’s Suffrage News & Centennials on Vimeo.

“How Women Won the Vote” is the theme of the National Women’s History Project’s “Gazette,” a 24-page special issue. It includes a valuable “Call to Action” to alert citizens from coast to coast to get ready for the 2020 national suffrage centennial. A single copy is free. A total of 25 copies can be purchased for $10 from the NWHP store online.

The National Women’s History Project’s 2017 special edition devoted to the women’s suffrage grassroots movement is a pivotal and groundbreaking marker in time alerting Americans to write women back into history. This has been the vision of the NWHP for the past 35 years.

The “Call to Action” editorial doesn’t mention the debates that will inevitably surface with the passage of time on the national level. The focus instead is on recognizing the significance of this dramatic social movement and rally individuals and organizations to recognize our history for what it is—all of it. There is a great deal to acknowledge. The Gazette editorial reads in part:

“The Women’s Suffrage Centennial honors this specific part of American history. We encourage celebrations to keep the focus on the women who won the vote and not leave them behind in discussions of contemporary history. The anniversary is not the time for such general approaches as ‘women in America’ or ‘women in protest.’ Rather, it should mark the start of many shows, exhibits, discussions and art on the historic and spiritual importance of multicultural suffragists…”

To keep a 2020 national suffrage commission focused on history rather than politics will be a challenge. Some political operatives are already turning the 2020 national centennial into an ideological battleground with the appointment of those who will serve on the commission. It wasn’t long ago that most Americans didn’t understand the meaning of or they couldn’t pronounce the word “suffrage.” Even fewer were aware of what it meant. This is changing.

Don’t forget that the “How Women Won the Vote” issue is available for bulk distribution through the National Women’s History Project’s store. Prior issues of the NWHP’s publication have been popular among educators and organizations.

Planning & preparation for 2020 suffrage centennial observance!

Protect American women’s voting rights! on Vimeo.

In honor of the August 26, 2020 U.S. centennial celebration, the National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites (NCWHS) is developing a nationwide Votes for Women Trail that will highlight the role of each state in the 72-year campaign to win votes for women. Will you join?

The trail will feature the buildings, sites, historical markers, and monuments where woman suffrage activity took place in the United States before August 26, 1920. The goal is to create a national trail dedicated to documenting the story of woman suffrage, but it’s necessary to start on the local level.

Tennessee played a crucial role in the battle for woman suffrage and deserves to be well represented on this national map. Please help. The NCWHS is looking for: buildings, monuments, historical markers, gravesites, historic sites
Anti-Suffrage sites and events
When in doubt, submit! The coordinating editor of the Votes for Women Trail reviews all submissions and will make the determination if the site should be included.

OTHER NEWS NOTES:

HarperCollins will publish a nonfiction book by Ann Patchett about women’s voting rights to honor the 2020 centennial. The book Vote will bring together suffrage history, Patchett’s personal experience registering voters, and advocacy about the importance of voting. Patchett lives in Nashville where she owns the bookstore, Parnassus Books.

PBS’ American Experience is developing a four-hour documentary for 2020. This opens up an opportunity for us to approach local or state PBS stations about preparing related documentaries about suffrage history.

 The Minnesota Historical Society is preparing a major exhibit on the American suffrage movement for 2020. The exhibit will first be housed in St. Paul MN at the Minnesota History Center and then will tour. Contact your city or state historical society or museum and ask them to host the MHS suffrage exhibit or develop one with local or state content. Museums in Kentucky, Arkansas, Boston, Washington, DC, Cincinnati, California, Washington state, and others are already laying the foundations for 2020.

On the home front—this article appeared in the Long Island press in March 1917:

Rockville Centre, L.I.—In the mind of the pretty little Miss Serena B. Kearns, daughter of Mrs. Edna Buckman Kearns of Waterview Road, women would have been promised the vote by President Woodrow Wilson, if he had seen her during the procession attending his inauguration on Sunday, March 4. Miss Kearns, who was on sentry duty in behalf of the cause waited.
