Vision 2020's Women 100
A Celebration of American Women
One hundred years ago, American women — half of the U.S. population — were not allowed to vote, yet many Americans take that right for granted today, and one out of three eligible women fails to exercise her right.
Vision 2020’s Women 100 is a celebration of American women during the year 2020, when we mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: women’s right to vote.
So what exactly will Vision 2020 be doing in 2020? Philadelphia, the birthplace of American democracy, will be home to Vision 2020’s Women 100 programs and events, while members of Vision 2020's national coalition will host sister programs across the country in support of the 19th Amendment centennial commemoration.
By honoring the hard work of the suffragists of a century ago through telling their stories, and those of so many other women who have been left out of history books, Vision 2020 intends for Women 100 to inspire women to act like the majority they are through increased civic engagement for years to come, starting with a campaign to mobilize women in record numbers in the 2020 national elections.
