As Quaker women we are not yet in the forefront of planning for the 2020 centennial of women’s voting rights in the United States. It isn’t too late. A great deal has been going on behind the scenes for several years. There haven’t been many Quaker women involved in this first phase. However, this is our last opportunity to get involved because August 26, 2020 will be upon us before too long.

Brainstorm with others about how you can schedule an event, a program, publish a letter to the editor of your local paper, schedule a speaker or workshop. Has your Quaker Meeting had a member or attender who was involved in the US suffrage movement? Did they march in the Quaker division of women’s suffrage parades? I bet you didn’t know that both Quaker women and men were involved. That’s another reason to follow QuakerWomen.com

  1. It’s about time. I’ve been hoping this would happen. I signed up for the regular posts and told me friends. We’ll be doing something. Just don’t know what at the moment.
