LetsRockTheCradle.com is preparing for the 2020 national suffrage centennial when US women will have been voting for 100 years. Did you do something special on August 26th—Women’s Equality Day? The National Women’s History Project has been working on this. Have you seen New Zealand’s suffrage medal? It is awarded to those who carry on the work of the earlier waves of women’s rights advocates. Let’s get behind the US issuing such a medal. Did you go to Convention Days in July in Seneca Falls, NY? If not, plan for next year.
Celebrate women’s freedom to vote.
We are a public service provided to the news media, policy makers, citizens, and all those interested in the national suffrage centennial in 2020 that will celebrate the first wave of the women’s rights movement in the United States. LetsRockTheCradle.com started as a blogging tour of the Finger Lakes region of New York State in 2013 by Marguerite Kearns and Olivia Twine in order to bring to the attention of the public the long and difficult struggle for women to win voting rights and the urgent need for public education about this time in US history.
