Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 8, 2020

Donate to the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame on Colorado Gives Day, Tuesday, December 8, 2020 and help write women back into History

“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.”

 — Michelle Obama, former First Lady of the United States

Women Matter, Now More Than Ever

We do what we do because women and their contributions have changed our world in profound ways. The extraordinary women in the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame inspire us to be the best we can be and to support our sisters who are changing the world in many positive ways. These women, and many like them, are not recognized in education or our history books for their incredible accomplishments and how they’ve changed the landscape of our communities.

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.

 

Dear Partners, Sponsors, Donors and Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame Induction scheduled for July 17.  This message is to let you know that our 2020 Induction will be delayed in order to protect the health of our participants and follow Colorado’s COVID-19 guidelines.  We are anxious to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our Class of 2020 Inductees without jeopardizing the health of our Inductees, their families and our guests. The Hall believes they deserve to be honored in person with a jubilant celebration.

Therefore, we will continue to follow our states guidelines and are making plans to celebrate with a full house next year, we are planning for a March of 2021 date.  We will send emails quarterly to keep you updated.  The Hall will also post updates  to our website as soon as we have a confirmed date and location.

CHECK OUT OUR LATEST PARTNERSHIP WITH GIRL SCOUTS OF COLORADO!

Girl Scouts of Colorado (GSCO) and the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame (CWHF) have joined forces to create a patch for Girl Scouts of all ages. The history of women isn’t taught in Colorado schools. Since the Girl Scouts provide opportunities for girls to learn by exploring their interests, passions and dreams, the exposure to great Colorado women —both historic and contemporary — provides role models to begin to fill that gap.

CWHF highlights extraordinary women, their accomplishments and impact on Colorado, the United States and even the world. Hall inductees are women who, through grit and grace, have advanced the roles of today’s women to levels of heightened recognition and models of inspiration. “Who better than CWHF to provide an adventure in learning about contemporary and historic Colorado women,” asks Beth Barela, CWHF board chair.
