Votes for Women 100th Anniversary Commemoration

 

Votes for Women Memories Wanted

Women's SuffarageClarksville, TN – Tennesseans changed the nation August 26th, 1920 by ratifying the 19th Amendment to the U.S Constitution, granting women the right to vote. Although there were ardent advocates both for and against ratification, little is known about local activities and organizations on either side.

Do you know family or community stories of events or individuals involved in this major social and political change? A story about that first vote your grandmother or her mother cast? What people thought would change once women voted? What did change? They are valuable memories that deserve to be preserved and without delay.
