A century ago, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution made voting, our country’s most fundamental mode of civic participation, a right regardless of gender. But this watershed moment in our democracy excluded millions of women, particularly women of color, from the ballot box for generations.
The 19th was founded to shine a light on the unfinished business of the 19th Amendment and empower women, people of color and the LGBTQ+ community with the information, community and tools they need to be equal participants in our democracy.
From August 10–14, 2020, we commemorated the suffrage centennial with The 19th Represents, presented by Goldman Sachs and Intuit, a week of virtual events that raised the voices of women — past and present — who are reshaping the American story. Recordings of the five days of conversations with prominent women in politics, civic engagement, journalism and the arts have been recorded and available to watch. Enjoy!
