The Pembroke Center has launched The Nineteenth at 100, a website marking the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Amendment, which enshrines that "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex," was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920.
The website aims to collect resources celebrating the anniversary of this milestone and exploring the ways in which the promise of "universal" suffrage has not been fulfilled. Use the site to find resources on the history of suffrage, resources on voting, the Census, and information on political activity at Brown University, as well as events related to voting, obstacles to voting, and the elections.
