Learn about the suffrage movement in Virginia, and in Arlington, and the resultng evolution of the League of Women Voters.

Nancy Tate, co-chair of the 2020 Women's Vote Centennial Initiative and former Executive Director of the national League of Women Voters, will describe what it took for women to win the constitutional right to vote. The 19th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified on August 26, 1920, after 72 years of organized effort. It was the greatest expansion of democracy on a single day in US history, and yet is a story that is little known.

This program is part of the Library’s celebration of Women's History Month. *The term women includes anyone who's female identifying, non-binary, gender fluid, genderqueer, and/or trans.
