Women's Suffrage National Holiday

This petition had 203 supporters

The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified on August 18, 1920. This amendment prohibits any citizen from being denied the right to vote on the basis of sex. This amendment granted women the right to vote in every state across America. The Women's Suffrage movement was led by suffragist Alice Paul. She was also the original author to the Equal Rights Amendment. This is an important day for all women in the United States of America, and deserves to be recognized at the national level. As of today, there are no national holidays that recognize American women. As Alice Paul spent her life fighting for the rights of women, we now ask that you fight for her recognition at the national level.
