One hundred years ago, in August of 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving American women the right to vote. History Colorado is celebrating and marking this anniversary with the Women’s Vote Centennial Colorado//2020 project. Visit their website for more information and a schedule of events.
These nonfiction books for children introduce the suffrage movement and some of the brave women (and one cat) who fought to secure the right to vote.
