October 31, 2020
Be a part of history! In 1915, 182 women marched in the formation of the United States Flag to celebrate the passage of women’s right to vote in Nevada and to support passing the national 19th Amendment in 1920, giving all women in our nation the right to vote.
On October 31, 2020, the Nevada Women’s History Project will re-enact this historic event in the Nevada Day Parade. Please join the Nevada Women's History Project to create your own place in Nevada's history.
Fee includes hat, costume, and commemorative memorabilia.
The Clark County Library has cancelled all events until the end of the year. We have made the decision to postpone our event until a date to be determined in March 2021. Many activists are talking about extending all Suffrage Centennial celebrations to 2021 and we agree!
Stitching Together Women's Suffrage: The 2020 Quilt celebrates the Centennial Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the United States. Nevada Commission for Women Commissioner Durette Candito displays the block she created to be registered for the project. The quilt will be displayed at Anthony Museum 2020 celebrations.
The Rightfully Hers Popup Exhibit is now on view outside the Nevada Secretary of State's office. This new pop-up exhibit from the National Archives commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Explore the history of the ratification of this historic amendment, women's voting rights before and after, and its impact today.
Thank you Joan!! We will hang the banner with pride at our events to celebrate the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
