Greater Boston Women’s Vote Centennial
The Greater Boston Women’s Vote Centennial is a special project within Women’s Advancement. We’re commemorating 100 years since Massachusetts became the eighth state to ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The 19th Amendment enabled women to vote in federal and state elections. We hope Bostonians will learn about the activism and hard work it took to win recognition for the right to vote. We want to inspire you to take part in our democracy fully.
The Greater Boston Women's Vote Centennial is a special project within the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement. We're kicking off a year of commemorations celebrating 100 years since the 19th Amendment was adopted in 1920, enabling women to vote.
This special project is made possible with funding by the Barbara Lee Family Foundation. The foundation's core belief is that women’s voices strengthen our democracy and enrich our culture.
