Hard Won. Not Done

"Hard Won. Not Done" Logo

A commemoration of the 100-Year Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment from an Iowa Perspective 
See official website here.

The case for equal voice for women — indeed for all citizens — was won in 1920 at enormous cost and sacrifice by women and men from Iowa and the nation. Yet even a casual glance at today’s headlines — voter disenfranchisement and suppression, equal representation in politics and business — reveals how much more remains to be done.

This spring, explore the history and current issues surrounding voting rights through special events, reading lists, and more.
