Marsha Blackburn Report: Honoring 100 Years Of Women’s Right to Vote

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Women did not wake up one magical morning to discover that, suddenly, they had been granted the right to vote. They fought tooth and nail for it.

The Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commemorative Coin Act, which is heading to the White House for the President’s signature, authorizes the Treasury to mint $1 silver coins in 2020 to commemorate the 19th Amendment’s 100th anniversary.

It is my hope that Americans will use these coins as a tool to rediscover the history of the women’s suffrage movement and the stories that led the suffragists to victory. The best part? It won’t cost taxpayers a penny!
