Women's History Month will begin in earnest this weekend with the one event that unifies women across the nation: the right to vote. March 3, 2013 will mark the 100 anniversary of the Woman's Suffrage Movement. Today women represent roughly 50 percent of the vote because of what women did 100 years ago.
On March 3, 2013,women will gather in DC from across the nation to celebrate the 100 anniversary of the 1913 Women's Suffrage Parade. The Suffrage Centennial Celebration, March 1-3, 2013 is a weekend celebration honoring the women who made history in 1913. "Their history is our history and the Suffrage Centennial Celebration will celebrate us all. Come learn from the bold, brave, band of suffragists who marched down Pennsylvania Avenue on March 3, 1913, proudly demanding their right to vote. Unstoppable from 1913 until women got the vote in 1920, they changed our history and our lives," the organization said.
The 19th Amendment will be on display at the National Archives from March 1 to March 8. The amendment gave women the right to vote and changed their status in American society. As many women had fought for the end of slavery , the 13th amendment was considered to be a step toward the full freedom of women to participate in governing the United States of America.
The Suffrage Centennial Celebration has a mission to bring people together in new ways to learn, honor, and grow from the history of America's suffragists, and proudly pass on their remarkable legacy women's right to vote to educate and inspire women and men, girls and boys," the organization said.
The events this weekend in DC will be presented by Alice Paul Institute, American Association of University Women, Cultural Tourism, DC Daughters of the American Revolution, Delta Sigma Theta, National Archives, National Park Service, National Press Club, National Women's History Museum, Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, Turning Point Suffragist Memorial, and Unite Women.org.
