Marsha Blackburn Report: Honoring 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – One hundred years ago, Tennessee became the “Perfect 36th” state when it ratified the 19th Amendment. It took over 70 years of tireless efforts by generations of suffragists to enfranchise American women under the United States Constitution. 

To honor this anniversary, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and I assembled a special project for the Smithsonian. We recruited 22 of our female colleagues to write essays about what the centennial means to them, the challenges they faced on their paths to the U.S. Senate, and their hopes for our future.
