Senate Honors 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage

The Senate adopted a Resolution on Tuesday (June 18) marking the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, which granted women the right to vote, according to Senator Dan Laughlin (R-49), a prime sponsor of the Resolution. Listen

“Today, the impact of that landmark amendment has faded somewhat as society has seemingly forgotten the uphill battle against millennia of chauvinistic history waged by dedicated women such as Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul, Carrie Chapman Catt and Elizabeth Cady Stanton,” Senator Laughlin said. “This is a true landmark event in our national history and a struggle that must be memorialized and never forgotten.”
