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.
Arlington County commemorates 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.

She blazed a path for female authors and thinkers to follow.
An enduring symbol of humanitarianism for her work during the American Civil War
