Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A long fight for a right. 2020 marks 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. This benchmark anniversary comes during a heated political year.

We wanted to focus this Hometown Conversations on why it should be celebrated, how Wisconsin played a role in this momentous change and how women can continue to honor the suffragists that made sure each citizen had the right to make their voice heard.
