Women's Suffrage National Holiday

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.


Letter to
United States Congress
I just signed the following petition addressed to: United States Congress.

----------------
Declare August 18th a National Holiday in honor of Alice Paul & the Women's Suffrage Movement.

As of today, we celebrate ten federal holidays as a nation. These important days mark the anniversary of significant historical events. 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. We believe it is certainly a significant event in our national history.

The Women's Suffrage movement was led by suffragist Alice Paul. It is because of her selflessness and sacrifice that women all over America now have the right to vote and make their voices known. It is in her memory, and in the memory of all of the women that fought in the Women's Suffrage movement, that we ask for August 18th to be forever remembered.

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.
