Turning Point Suffragist Memorial

History

The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial commemorates all of the millions of little-known women who engaged in the suffragist movement primarily from 1848 through passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920 that allowed most women to vote.  This memorial is both a visual symbol and educational tool that elevates them to their proper place in history.  Their stories begged to be told and you will find them here.  The suffragists’ decades-long persistence resulted in the greatest expansion of democracy the world had ever witnessed when twenty-five million women won the right to vote with the stroke of a pen on August 26, 1920, now known as Women’s Equality Day.
