Suffrage Centennial Celebration with CWHF, League of Women Voters of CO and Girl Scouts Colorado
Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud to partnered with the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and the League of Women Voters of Colorado to offer Girl Scouts a special opportunity to learn about the 100 year history of the women’s suffrage movement, which ultimately led to the passage of the 19th amendment.
19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States: “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.”
Girls will learn about the suffrage movement and the women who shaped history. They’ll explore how these actions set the stage for women’s rights throughout history, how the Women’s Rights Movement is still a part of our current lives, and how, through advocacy, we have the power to impact the lives of others. Representatives of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame will teach girls about the history of the movement and about Colorado suffragists, and representatives from the League of Women Voters will talk to girls about how they can take action today to make the world a better place. Girls will also learn about what has changed since 1920, as the 19th Amendment did not grant voting rights for all, specifically women of color.
