2020 | The Centennial of Women's Suffrage

After 72 years of fierce campaigning, the 19th Amendment was passed and ratified in 1920. While much work is still needed to ensure equal rights for all people, women's suffrage has paved the way for many victories along the winding path to equality.

The women’s suffrage movement wasn’t just about advocating for a woman’s right to vote. It was about protecting and guaranteeing equal access to opportunity for all women. Today, 100 years after the historic passage of the 19th Amendment, NAWBO-OC continues to embody the spirit of the movement, empowering women entrepreneurs to pursue greater economic, social, and political freedom and influence.
