NH and the 2020 Women's Suffrage Centennial

Lebanon City Clerks wearing vote shirts in front of 03766 bike rack to celebrate 19th Amendment

To celebrate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that guaranteed the right to vote for all American women, the Lebanon Heritage Commission compiled a list of resources on the topic. Also, the Lebanon City Clerk’s office dressed up for the occasion. The 19th Amendment was formally ratified on August 18, 1920 (a century ago from this Tuesday, August 18, 2020), and adopted on August 26, 1920.

XIX Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

It was the hard work of leaders like Susan B. Anthony that achieved this important step in history. For example, the motto of a weekly women’s rights newspaper called The Revolution, which Ms. Anthony helped to publish in the 18060s-1870’s, was “Men their rights and nothing more; women their rights and nothing less.” 

New Hampshire had its own role as the first New England State, in 1878, to approve school suffrage for women, according to the National Park Service.
