Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment
The first suffrage picket line leaving the National Woman's Party headquarters to march to the White House gates on January 10, 1917.
From August 2019 through December 2020, Arlington County will host 19 events to commemorate the brave women who fought for and earned their right to vote in the United States.
Through struggle, persistence and determination they ensured that over 83 million women today are registered to vote and have a say in our government.
This initiative is brought to you by Arlington County, its employee resource groups, and community partners.
More Events Coming Soon
Just over 100 years ago this week, on November 14, 1917, a group of suffragists underwent a horrifying night of torture and abuse that would come to be known as the “Night of Terror.”
