“From Women’s Suffrage to the Women’s March”

Democrats mark 100 years anniversary of the 19th Amendment in new convention video 

MILWAUKEE—As America marks 100 years this week since women won the right to vote, a new video released at the 2020 Democratic National Convention celebrates all of the women who have been leading for the past century —on the same night Democrats prepares to nominate the first woman of color to be Vice President of the United States.

The new video weaves together footage of women marching throughout American history with the voices of the bold leaders who are writing its next chapter. All across the nation, women are breaking the rules, building coalitions, and rising up in service of a movement now a centennial in the making. Even in the face of Donald Trump’s everyday attacks on women—nevertheless, they persist.
