The 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, was passed by Congress in 1919 and ratified in 1920. The Ward 6 Democrats are celebrating this 100th anniversary by honoring some of the women who have lived or worked in Ward 6 and who have made significant contributions to better our lives and our community.
Women of Ward 6 is a non-partisan recognition of Ward 6’s women, sponsored by the Ward 6 Democrats, in partnership with the National Woman’s Party, the Capitol Restoration Society and the Hill Rag.
