The Greater Boston Women's Vote Centennial is a special project within the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement to mark 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.
